The City of Seattle has enacted a mandatory periodic building tune up for commercial buildings greater than 50,000 square feet. While this mandate begins its phased in implementation beginning next year, the City is getting ready to launch an “accelerator” version of the tune up focusing on buildings between 20,000 and 100,000 square feet. This is a voluntary program which will provide valuable learning experience for the City and building owners in anticipation of the mandated effort. Interested tune up service providers have indicated their desire to participate to the City of Seattle and the first round of program training will begin in mid-June with additional sessions scheduled throughout the summer. Building owners with properties that fit the size profile of the accelerator may use any of the qualified service providers (and in some instances, use their internal staff if they meet City requirements) and get a head start on the mandate. Technical support and incentives will be made available for qualifies projects. For more information, visit here.
