Stack House has won the distinction of Outstanding Multifamily Project of the Year for the 2013 LEED for Homes Awards from the US Green Building Council!

Rushing provided design-build electrical engineering and full lighting design for the LEED Platinum-certified project in South Lake Union, teaming with Runberg Architecture on the Vulcan Real Estate-owned site. Stack House comprises one half of the Block 10 project and includes two newly constructed residential towers. In addition to receiving LEED for Homes Mid-Rise Platinum certification, Stack House also meets the Seattle 2030 District challenge for energy and water savings.

The Block 10 redevelopment also includes core and shell renovation of the historic Supply Laundry Building for retail, restaurant, and office use.  An east-west pedestrian walkway allows access to a central, interior courtyard. LEED review is in progress for this portion of the project, targeting LEED-CS v2009 Platinum certification.
