The Living Building Challenge (LBC) is a certification program and design framework that inspires the world’s highest-performing buildings, with an emphasis on optimal energy and water use, occupant health and wellness, and materials toxicity avoidance. This best-in-class, performance-based approach results in better buildings, industry and media attention, and public interest. The City of Seattle incentivizes the development of Living Buildings via height and density bonuses.
Säzän Environmental Services offers feasibility studies, charrette facilitation, design reviews, and certification guidance for Living Building projects. From concept through construction, successful certification, and into occupancy, Säzän Environmental Services will guide you through the certification path that best fits your context and budget.
