Jason F. McLennan, winner of the 2016 ENR Award of Excellence for creating the International Living Future Institute and its rigorous Living Building Challenge sustainability program, has achieved his personal goal of getting his super-green, off-the-grid Bainbridge Island, Wash., house—which McLennan and his family moved into last year—certified as a Living Building (ENR 4/11/16 p. 42). To date, Heron Hall, by architect McLennan Design, has qualified for three of the seven LBC regenerative-building categories—net-zero annual water use, place and beauty. The McLennan team expects to achieve the other four categories—net-zero energy, nontoxic materials, health and happiness, and equity—within the next year.
