The new EMP Museum administrative building at 120 Sixth Ave. N. is a 51K-square-foot, LEED Platinum-certified building full of offices, storage and workshop space. It is also the first office in Seattle to be certified as "salmon safe," to which you reply, "I didn't even know salmon worked there."
Salmon-Safe, a Portland nonprofit, certifies projects that protect water quality and restore habitat. The nonprofit recognizes construction comnpanies that implement pollution control and runoff protection measures in all of their projects. The building features a rain water collection system and uses 75% less water than a building of its size normally would.
