Seattle’s iconic Spheres save 400 tons of CO2 with ECOPlanet
Decarbonizing construction, the Spheres building in Seattle is LEED Gold certified, with a live rainforest and built with ECOPlanet, with 80% less CO2 inside.
Thanks to the ECOPlanet solution, the project delivered more than 80% CO2 reduction over the industry average, saving up to 400 tons of CO2 and getting a LEED Gold certification. The Spheres span over three blocks in the center of the city. The intersecting spherical domes range from 24 to 29 meters in height, each taking up half of a city block. This greenhouse-like environment has been conceived to provide an inspirational space where occupants can live and work while surrounded by 40,000 plants from the cloud forests of 30 countries.
