Georgia Tech aims to build and run The Kendeda Building to the Living Building Challenge certification standard, the world’s most scrupulous sustainable design and performance standard for buildings. Therefore, The Kendeda Building will conform to the stringent construction guidelines and also operating procedures. This involves yielding energy more than it uses on-site through renewable sources, as well as obtaining, treating, and reusing water more than it requires annually.
We are excited to showcase The Kendeda Building to the campus community. By design, it will necessitate that we think differently about how to occupy and use a building. It’s an educational process for us all.
Shan Arora, Director, The Kendeda Building
