We hope you were able to join us at the last Why Smart Buildings event (a sold out event!) and we are excited to announce the next event in the series: ‘Why Smart Buildings? Creating a Compelling Business Case” on September 17th at the Pacific Tower from 11:30am – 2pm. We will also be hosting a Tool Lending Library Open House directly after the event, we hope you can join us!
Seattle’s Energy Benchmarking Program (SMC 22.920) requires owners of non-residential and multifamily buildings (20,000 sf or larger) to track energy performance and annually report to the City of Seattle.
If you missed the LIGHTFAIR® International Post-game webinar with the Lighting Design Lab last month, you can watch the webinar recording on the Smart Buildings Center YouTube channel and view the slide deck on the Lighting Design Lab’s website.
LIGHTFAIR® International is the industry event where everyone – from huge conglomerates to small tech-firm startups – come to display innovative new ideas that are changing how we illuminate and connect to the world around us.
Topics covered in the post-conference webinar include: networked and luminaire level lighting controls; tunable lighting and power over ethernet; non-energy benefits that connect utilities and their customers; and other hot topics like horticultural lighting, lighting and health, and identifying market barriers/education needs.
The webinar is brought to you through a partnership between the Lighting Design Lab and the Smart Buildings Center.

Register now for a power-packed session that offers the industry a better understanding of the nuts and bolts, and ultimately improved quality, of multifamily energy modeling for LEED projects. Seasoned instructors Alistair Jackson and David Reddy will impart wisdom and insider tips for modeling multifamily New Construction (NC). Content will include the typical timeline of modeling milestones, documentation requirements, common reviewer comments, tips for using modeling to optimize energy efficiency, and insight for non-analysts seeking to coordinate effectively on LEED projects. You won’t want to miss this valuable opportunity.
Who should attend: This training primarily targets beginning and mid-level energy modelers. Non-practitioners who coordinate with LEED energy modelers as part of design, real estate development, energy consulting or public permit review and funding may also wish to attend the training.
Post training information session: For those who are interested to stay after the training, Seattle City Light and Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections will outline benefits in permitting, funding, and FAR that are available to some projects on the basis of LEED Energy and Atmosphere whole building modeling results.
Cost: $125 ; Registration: https://leedmultifamilymodeling.bpt.me/
