4-15_BullitCenter1_010Now this is something to get excited about…

The Bullit Center is an amazing demonstration in TRULY SUSTAINABLE DESIGN…no longer is less bad the only option.

Here is a list summarizing the extensive sustainability features this project demonstrates:

– Building Neurology – a computer system that is constantly monitoring and responding to the environment to ensure efficient control of heating/cooling, passive/mechanical ventilation, delighting and metabolic systems

– 575 Solar Panels to create a Net Zero Energy building

– Composting Toilets – That’s RIGHT! and it DOESN’T SMELL! or at least it didn’t when I was there…it’s AMAZING.

– Wastewater from sinks and showers are stored and then cleaned through a constructed wetland before being infiltrated back into the soil to recharge the local aquifer.

– Rainwater catchment – Eventually the building will use only the water it catches on site…they are currently working out regulations with the municipal water district…

– Central – Walk/Bike-able Location

– Natural lighting, radiant heating, active design, regenerative elevator….and much more…check out the website for the full details! http://www.bullittcenter.org/building/building-features/
