The Roxborough Group, which is a real estate private equity firm headquartered in San Francisco, has completed the conversion of its Kirkland 405 Corporate Center campus to net zero carbon operations.

The two-building, 130,000 square foot campus is the first net-zero carbon operations office building in Kirkland and the first net-zero carbon operations office campus within the Roxborough portfolio, according to the Roxborough Group.

“Delivering carbon-free building operations is one critical way that we can work with our tenants to help them achieve their business goals of attracting talent and managing their own carbon impact,” said Josh Callahan, managing director of the Roxborough Group. “The transition to all-electric renewable power further adds to K405’s first-class offering of light-filled, convenient, and flexible office space.”

K405 buildings A-1 and A-2 are home to tenants such as Universal Avionics, Lowe’s Innovation Center and TSRI. The business center is among a list of commercial customers of Puget Sound Energy (PSE) to transition to 100% powered by renewable energy, through PSE’s Green Power program. Heating and cooling is delivered throughout the building through all-electric equipment.

The Green Power program replaces the use of coal and natural gas-generated electricity with predominantly wind and solar based production. About 8% of PSE’s customers have enrolled in the Green Power program.

“Seeing commercial property owners, like Roxborough, lead the way is particularly satisfying,” said Leslie Myers, PSE Product Manager. “It confirms that our products help customers reach sustainability goals–and it expands the number of people who get access to renewable energy just by going to the office every day.”
