Mass Timber Building Puts Spokane, Washington on the Map as a Leader in Carbon-Neutral Building

By: Metropolis

The Catalyst Building in Spokane, Washington couldn’t have a more fitting name. Once it is completed later this year, the five-story, 159,000-square-foot office structure will sit at a literal crossroads. It is the first new building in a developing energy and resource sharing eco-district that connects the city’s core downtown with the University District, home to campuses that include Eastern Washington University, the University of Washington, and Gonzaga University. Its construction also brings together a cross-industry team, including developers McKinstry and Avista, Katerra as architect of record and general contractor, and Michael Green Architecture as design partner.
