zHomeReducing the Impact
Issaquah is a national leader in reducing the impact of building construction and operations. The City led the creation of:

Fire Station 72
The fire station uses only 25 percent of the energy and 50 percent of the potable water use of a typical regional fire station. It is one of the most energy-efficient fire stations in the U.S.

zHome
The first zero net-energy multifamily project in the United States.

Vision on Sustainable Development
In Issaquah, we strive to achieve the highest possible quality of life for today's citizens and future generations.

Issaquah is a developing City and our buildings have a significant impact on our economy, natural environment, health, comfort and productivity. The City places a high priority on protecting the natural environment through sustainable development practices.

We invite you to learn more about our Vision on Sustainable Development.

We Can Help
The City’s efforts have helped lead to significant results — more than 2,300 Built Green-certified homes and more than a dozen LEED-certified buildings.

Nearly 17 percent of Issaquah's residential housing stock is Built Green-certified — far greater than any community in Washington state — reflecting our community's values. 


We're eager to help you achieve your goal! We're available to help with technical expertise, and we also support green building with permit expediting and financial incentives.
