Poulsbo Work-Eat-Drink on its way to being LEED-certified

POULSBO — Poulsbo Work-Eat-Drink, under construction on 8th Avenue, is on its way to being one of three LEED-certified buildings in Poulsbo.

LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, certification is granted by the U.S. Green Building Council based on use of sustainable resources in construction and the completed project’s energy efficiency and environmental impact.

Poulsbo Work-Eat-Drink will be the home of Vibe Coworks, Crabtree Kitchen + Bar, ChocMo, and High Spirits. The contractor is Tim Ryan Construction, a member of the U.S. Green Building Council. Construction is expected to be completed in early 2018.

Other projects working on LEED certification:North Kitsap Fishline’s Comprehensive Services Center, 787 NW Liberty Lane (and Viking Avenue).

Starbucks, 21215 Olhava Way, Poulsbo.

According to the U.S. Green Building Council, LEED-certified buildings are located in more than 165 countries and territories. “LEED buildings save energy, water, resources, generate less waste and support human health,” the council’s website states. “LEED buildings attract tenants, cost less to operate and boost employee productivity and retention.”
