ShoWare Event Center showcases green design 

The ShoWare Center, a 154,000 sq ft multipurpose arena that is home to the Seattle Thunderbirds hockey team as well as a regional venue for sports, entertainment, concerts and trade shows, has been awarded LEED® Gold-NC (new construction) certification.

Designed by Seattle-based LMN, the ShoWare Center is the first newly constructed event center in North America to achieve the LEED® Gold rating.

Sustainable design features include: A variety of water-efficient features, including dual-flush toilets and low-flow fixtures, that will lead to an estimated 40 percent savings in water usage; Energy smart lighting, heating and cooling systems, including the ice-making equipment, which is predicted to reduce energy use by 37 percent over the national standards; and a rainwater collection system that uses water obtained from the roof to replenish the existing wetlands adjacent to the center’s site. The parking area is constructed over a layer of gravel, which will help hold stormwater runoff and provide controlled release of rainwater back into the drainage system.
