Method Prefab, a division of Method Homes, recently announced that they're partnering with Seattle non-profit SEED Collaborative on their SEED Classroom project, an environmentally-friendly school room concept.
Founded by a group of green building industry professionals, their pilot project is the SEED Classroom, a Living Building Challenge learning space that reduces costs of operation and maintenance through zero-energy, zero-water design, 100 year construction, and providing an environment that allows teachers to use the building itself as the basis for applied STEM, art and social studies curriculum. The SEED Classroom prototype is currently being constructed and will be unveiled in Seattle during the International Living Future Institute UnConference in May. Eventually, the Classroom will travel to Alberta where it will serve three schools.
Thanks to this and other projects, Method, whom you may know from their prefab work around Washington, has recently doubled production space in their Ferndale factory.
