About the Guild Founded by green building pioneers in 1993, the Guild has become a community of construction-related professionals, homeowners, and partners concerned with ecological building in the Pacific Northwest. The Northwest EcoBuilding Guild’s Mission is to support through education the progressive work of our members in the Pacific Northwest in order to improve the relationship between our communities and our built environment. We provide open-source educational tools to the construction industry and the general public in order to encourage building practices that dramatically reduce carbon emissions, are self-sustaining, contribute to local economies, and create optimal conditions for human health and community. We consider the needs of the seventh generation in all that we do and encourage inclusive discourse to that end. We invite you to join us in becoming part of this community.

Learn More and Participate! Visit us at EcoBuilding.Org for more information about the Guild, its mission, its members, and how you can join to help us push the envelope. GP-4

Deep Green Influence Expanding Code Innovations to Transform the Built Environment By Chris van Daalen, Principal Investigator

F

or nearly 25 years, sustainable building innovators and members of the Northwest EcoBuilding Guild have been pushing the envelope with new designs, materials, and technology, a virtual research and development department for better buildings. Now our Code Innovations Database is expanding so the Guild can lead a regional partnership with a vision to transform the building regulatory system and make high-performance, deep green building the norm rather than the exception. Given the size of that vision, our current strategy is more practical and immediate: to document successful permitting precedents and policy innovations, and share them with broad range of people who can help move the needle toward our goal. We aim to put actionable information into the hands of Code Officials across the Northwest, and builders nationwide. In the coming year you’ll have the chance to be part of that effort. Contribute your knowledge. Engage city, county, and state decision-makers. Share our information widely to your Seattle Chapter Green Pages

networks. Join with others and advocate for code and policy changes that can make it easier to build deep green buildings.

A call to action There’s never been a better time to make a difference. The current boom in construction is an unprecedented opportunity to innovate in order to transform our built environment from a source of pollution into to a key solution – to make healthier homes and buildings accessible to everyone in our community. Unfortunately, building innovators often face regulatory disconnects that can slow or stop their best ideas from being adopted broadly: we have to make it easier to build green, and a number of local companies and individuals have helped contribute to this goal in recent years. Pin Foundations, Inc. became a “Gem of Innovation” underwriter for the Clearwater Commons case studies, a 16 unit cohousing cluster where their innovative foundations helped create a positive impact development restoring a salmonbearing stream in Snohomish County. Years after Ben Kaufmann of Greenworks Realty published

seminal research documenting increased market value of certified Built Green homes, he continues as a Champion of code innovation and real estate. NK Architects of Seattle, innovative designers of high performance homes, is partnering PassiveHouseNW with the Guild to bring advanced building envelope innovations into building codes. RDH Building Science worked with manufacturers and city inspectors to demonstrate the fire safety and energy performance of continuous insulation wall assemblies, then sponsored a Code Innovations case study to document their breakthrough.

Your turn to help The Northwest EcoBuilding Guild invites you to get involved: • Visit CodeInnovations.org and tell us: what’s your innovation? • Show your leadership: underwrite our “Gems of Innovation” case study series • Act locally: Become an Innovation Ambassador to your city or county building department • Be an ally: Join our partnership to advocate for innovation – codes and policies to support living buildings, Passive House standards, net-zero energy, net-zero water and more.

For more information, subscribe to the Code Innovations blog at CodeInnovations.org. Attend the NWGreen 2016 Conference on Nov. 5, or contact principal investigator, Chris van Daalen at 360-789-9669 or Education@EcoBuilding.org.

Adaptive redevelopment of the historic 110-year old Supply Laundry building, vacant for over a decade, required an upgrade to the stringent 2009 Seattle Energy Code. Learn more about this case study and more at ecobuilding.org/code-innovations.

IS VENTILATION REALLY NECESSARY? Today’s home and building codes are driving more airtight, energy-conscious construction. As a result, maintaining healthy, balanced indoor air quality is much more important now. A properly designed ventilation system prevents moisture and costly moisture-related damage, reduces maintenance, improves a home’s durability, and saves energy. Think of ventilation in a home like the air exchange that takes place in your lungs. Each time you inhale and exhale, old and contaminated air is removed while fresh, oxygen-rich air is brought in to replace it. Your home’s ventilation system serves the same purpose by removing old, musty air and replenishing the home with clean, healthy air. Simply put, a home has to breathe. Harmful pollutants found in every home Stale, uncirculated air breeds all sorts of harmful pollutants inside a home. These include mold, mildew, pollen, dust mites, pet dander, viruses, and bacteria. Accumulation of these pollutants can result in hazardous health effects for occupants and structural damage to the home. How to improve indoor air quality The first line of defense against poor indoor air quality is to reduce or remove the source of pollutants. Paints, solvents, or other chemicals should be stored outside the dwelling. If you use an attached garage for storage, make sure there’s an airtight seal between the garage and the rest of the home. Additionally, use building materials and cleaning products with low toxicity levels. Unfortunately, it is virtually impossible to completely eliminate all indoor pollutants. Mechanical ventilation is your only protection against these harmful elements. A home with mechanical ventilation offers higher quality air, better health for the home - and a comfortable living environment for the entire family.

isterns are large, above ground containers used to collect rain that falls on a roof– bascially, they are super-sized rain barrels that hold between 200 and 1,000 gallons of water. Larger sizes are available but are usually used in agricultural or industrial settings. Most cisterns today are made of a heavy duty plastic and come in a variety of colors and shapes from round to “slim-line� models that fit against a wall. They are heavy duty enough to be warrantied for ten years.

Capturing water all year round People all over Puget Sound are enthusiastic about capturing rain to use for interior and GP-28

exterior watering during our dry summers. Collected rainwater can water pots of happy plants all summer and soak thyme and fall vegetables that are just going into the ground in fall. Collected rainwater can be used for any non-drinking water purpose. Brace Point Pottery, for example, even uses their collected rainwater in making their pottery! It is surprising how even our short summer showers provide enough rainwater for much of our home watering needs. Beyond providing water in the summer, collecting rainwaterin the winter, allows homeowners to store the water temporarily and allow it to trickle out into the storm or sewer system. This helps Northwest EcoBuilding Guild

reduce stormwater impacts, including erosion, flooding, and local waterway pollution and, especially in neighborhoods with combined sewer systems in Seattle, helps keep sewage from overflowing into our local waterways. One of the best methods for collecting rainwater is to use a cistern.

RainWise cisterns keep local waters clean RainWise, a partnership between Seattle Public Utilities and King County Wastewater Treatment Division, is an innovative program in Seattle to help reduce combined sewer overflows resulting from excess ecobuilding.org/seattle

rainwater from a given storm event. RainWise provides rebates to private property owners to manage the rain that falls on their roof using a rain garden (see below) or cistern. RainWise cisterns are specially equipped to let the water collected slowly trickle back into the sewer system to then be ready to fill again during the next storm. RainWise is available to about 50,000 properties in Seattle neighborhoods with combined storm and sewer pipes; in these areas, heavy rains can cause sewer overflows. However, even if you are not in a RainWiseeligible neighborhood, installing a cistern has multiple benefits.

Capturing and slowing the release of rainwater helps reduce pollutants and erosion and also helps with seasonal flooding in addition to providng irrigation water for your gradens and landscape. Cisterns are available for purchase at Seattle Conservation Corps at Seattle.gov/parks/ about-us/do-business-with-us/ supplies-for-sale. To check a property’s eligibility for a RainWise rebate, look up the address at RainWise.Seattle.gov. Several other jurisdictions also provide incentives. A full list of incentive programs can be found at 12000RainGardens.org under “resources.”

instances, cisterns can come to the rescue. To find out if a rain garden is right for your home, visit 700MillionGallons.org for more information on cisterns, rain gardens, and other kinds of green stormwater infrastructure. RainWise information can be found here too. For resources on cisterns and rainwater catchment, also visit KingCounty.gov/environment/ stewardship/nw-yard-andgarden/rain-barrels.
