The Ogden Resource Center serves as a test for large scale, state-owned buildings. At the time of installation, the system was one of the largest building-dedicated systems in the Pacific Northwest, based on kilowatts of power generated per square feet of building space. The Ogden Resource center is a new building on the Washington State School for the Blind (WSSB) campus. It serves as Washington's K-12 instructional resource center for blind and visually impaired children. The building integrates many sustainable elements, including the only modular earthroof on the west coast,... Read full project narrative >>
