See how rainwater is collected, filtered, and treated to supply the building's potable water. Check out the greywater system to learn how wastewater is filtered via the building's indoor plants and sent outdoors to a constructed wetland. We’ll lift the hood on the composting toilets, kick the tires on the rooftop solar, and see how we keep tabs on where the electricity goes. We'll also take look at the finishes and materials that make up a Living Building, and some clever and puzzling details you might miss on a casual walk-through.
Register at Eventbrite to let us know you're coming, and meet under the stairs in the atrium.
For more Living Building fun head over to the Hitchcock Center for the Environment at noon!
