This summer, the Seattle 2030 District is hosting a design competition that will take a few existing buildings and show what it will take to get from their current performance to net-zero energy (ZNE). Ideally, it would show progressive changes needed to get to ZNE by 2030, called Zero Over Time (ZOT), by mapping out the necessary equipment upgrades to align with capital expenditure.
We are currently recruiting architects, engineers, and general contractors to be placed on a team to develop energy improvements for the buildings that get chosen as case studies for this competition. We hope to get groups formed and paired up with the building owner/manager by the end of June. Teams will work on proposals in July–September. Winners will be invited to the Vision Awards in October.
All levels of professionals are welcome. For more information, please read the flyer for details.
