The Design of Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation HQ

There is a unique opportunity to hear about the design of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation HQ in Seattle by the lead Engineer Cormac Deavy of Arup who now heads up the Arup Cardiff Office region.

Opened in July 2011, the new 900,000ft2 LEED® Platinum for New Construction Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation reflects its commitment to philanthropy and its roots in the Pacific Northwest.

The Foundation and design team's goal since the beginning of design was to make sure that sustainability was incorporated into all aspects of the campus. In October 2005, Arup's Seattle office joined the NBBJ-led design team to help them achieve these goals.
