Tribe, nonprofit begin green building 'lab'

Marine View Ventures, the economic development arm of the Puyallup Tribe of Indians, and the Institute for Environmental Research and Education have unveiled plans to build the first Net Zero energy building in the state.

Dubbed a "teaching building," the facility will make as much energy as it uses, with rainwater as its sole water source -- while acting as a living laboratory for both the Tribe and the Institute.

The building differs from LEED buildings in that it will not be judged based on design, but rather on its operational results.
