The Washington State University Everett building, at 915 North Broadway in Everett, won first place for the ASHRAE Puget Sound Region in the New Education Facility Design category for 2022. The 95,000 square-foot building uses photovoltaic arrays, natural ventilation, natural lighting, rainwater harvesting, radiant flooring, rain gardens, and advanced LED fixtures. According to the U.S. Green Building Council, WSU Everett is one of six LEED Gold buildings in Everett.
“Even though the building has been occupied for five years, the building is ahead of its time,” said Mark Gardner, director of engineering at McKinstry. “There are so many great building features, and it is a great demonstration of sustainability for current and future students!” Gardner enthusiastically thanked Bobby Christenson, facilities manager of WSU Everett for “taking such great care” of the building.
The first-place win automatically qualifies the state-of-the-art building for a regional award, which includes Alaska, British Columbia, and other western states.
In a note of congratulations, Keith Bickford, ASHRAE Puget Sound technical activity chair, said, “It is not easy to stand out as exceptional in Washington where we have the fourth strictest energy code in the nation, and the WSU project did exactly that.”
