The five-story, 159,000-square-foot Catalyst building opened its doors in Spokane, marking the culmination of a collaborative effort of diverse industry partners to create a transformative, real-world prototype for sustainable development. The project anchors the new South Landing Eco-District neighborhood in Spokane.
The Catalyst building and the adjacent Scott Morris Center for Energy Innovation demonstrate new building techniques, materials and a sustainable shared energy model central to creating one of the largest zero energy buildings in North America and one of the first zero carbon buildings to be certified by the International Living Future Institute.
Catalyst is the result of a unique collaboration between a cross-industry team of partners including Avista, McKinstry, Katerra and Eastern Washington University (EWU).
Avista’s Scott Morris says, “This is an important milestone to celebrate. What we have created is so transformative and innovative, it will serve as a new model for collaboration across industries.”
