Olive 8 Case Study


“This being my first experience with Resound Energy’s turnkey approach to high yield, economically priced LED retrofit projects, I enjoyed a trouble free, hand’s off, and reliably completed project. The installation will save me thousands of dollars annually in electrical consumption costs. It was also done right the first time, which saves me lots of time and effort.”

Olive 8 Steps up to LEDs

OOlive 8live 8 Residences is a high end condominium community occupying the top 22 stories of the 39 story Olive 8 Tower which is Seattle’s first LEED Silver certified hotel/condominium.
