Deborah Sigler is Program Coordinator for Tours and Outreach at the University of Washington Center for Integrated Design (CID) located in Seattle’s Bullitt Center, a certified Living Building, designed and built to be a model of true sustainability and drive change in the marketplace. Deborah’s work serves to advance, both public and professional, awareness and support, for policies that favor high performance buildings, renewable energy and regenerative built environments using the Bullitt Center as a living laboratory. For the past 10 years she has curated and delivered an on-demand, comprehensive, onsite tour program that provides the public and private stakeholders in-person access to the Bullitt Center.
Deborah works closely with the Bullitt Foundation and other CID sponsors to ensure that accurate and up-to-date information is provided to groups visiting the Bullitt Center. Seeing is believing. Touring the Bullitt Center is transformative. Throughout her tenure at the UW CID, Deborah has led tens of thousands of visitors through the Bullitt Center showcasing a building that’s designed and operates like a living organism, harnessing all the energy it needs from the sun (net zero energy), using only the rainwater that falls on its roof (net zero water), producing no waste and using locally sourced materials that are toxic free.
Deborah holds a Master degree in Education from the University of California, Berkeley and a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Lawrence University and Bachelor of Science in Culinary Arts from the California Culinary Academy.
