Pick up a copy of October's business examiner for a feature on Waymark's office which is currently pursuing Living Building Certification
Will King discusses green building certifications in a recent Journal of commerce article. Follow this link for the whole story, excerpt below.
"Living Buildings, meanwhile, are self-sufficient, produce more energy than they use and collect and treat all water on site. King has worked on some of the first Living Building designs in the Pacific Northwest. He doesn't expect it will dethrone LEED due to demands necessary to build a net zero structure.
While he wouldn't discourage someone from building a LEED structure, he believes a Living Building is preferable because certification requires actual, rather than anticipated, performance over 12 consecutive months.
Still, when it comes down to the nuts and bolts, King said the current BC Building Code is just as advanced as LEED certification."
