2018 VISION AWARD FOR WATER - WRIGHT RUNSTAD & COMPANY - 1201 3RD
Wright Runstad & Company has helped set the standard for water reuse in Seattle with their work at 1201 Third. The building utilizes groundwater that flows into the foundation and reuses it through irrigation, the fountain water feature, and most recently, the chillers and cooling towers. The success of this first stage prompted the building engineers to think bigger and harvest rainwater from the roof for the Aux Loop cooling towers at the top of the building. Between the two systems, the building saves an average of 864,000 gallons per year.
