Jason Lear, owner of Batt + Lear Design Build and Chris van Daalen, Principal Investigator for the Northwest EcoBuilding Guild’s Code Innovations Database will lead a lunchtime discussion about innovations in energy efficient building envelope design, and Seattle’s unique role in regulatory innovation to make this the norm, highlighting examples from the Database and other Guild resources.
Green building innovators push the envelope with new designs, materials and technology that dramatically reduce buildings’ impact on the climate, environment and human health. Yet they face regulatory barriers from building codes, standards and policies that lag behind the pace of innovation, which sometimes stall or stop proven innovations from being adopted broadly. The NW EcoBuilding Guild’s Code Innovations Database addresses these code barriers head-on by publishing technical precedents on successfully permitted green and high performance building innovations such as those pioneered in Seattle.  Open-source information sharing is key to getting more cutting-edge, green design and innovative projects designed, permitted and built.
