Tour: zHome + Eastside Fire and Rescue Station 72

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

zHome is a revolutionary, 10-unit townhome development that uses smart design and cutting edge technologies to radically reduce its environmental impacts. zHome will prove that homes that use zero net energy and 60% less water, emit net zero carbon emissions, have clean indoor air and use only low-toxicity materials are possible and scalable to mainstream home production.

Eastside Fire & Rescue 72 is a consolidated fire, rescue, and medical service provider for two fire districts and four cities spanning 190 square miles and serving 120,000 customers in eastern King County, WA. Station 72 is the most energy efficient fire station on the planet. Station 72 achieved Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Platinum status. Incorporated into the design of the fire station are the latest technologies to control utilities, recycle rainwater, manage temperature controls, balance natural and manufactured lighting, and minimize energy use. The construction methods utilized followed strict guidelines that minimized environmental impact. One of the most obvious incorporated energy initiatives is that of solar panels which virtually cover the entire roof area of the facility. The system is producing enough electricity that the facility is meeting its own needs, while providing excess generated power to the electrical grid. The station had a total project estimate cost in excess of $8 million. The final cost of the project was $6.6 million.

PLEASE NOTE, THIS TOUR IS MEETING AT THE SHERATON HOTEL AND DEPARTING AS A GROUP. PLEASE ARRIVE 15 MINUTES PRIOR TO THE DEPARTURE OF THIS TOUR FOR CHECK-IN.
