The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design was designed and constructed to meet the requirements of the Living Building Challenge (LBC) version 3.1. The material covered in this document is intended to inform and instruct staff to operate the building to LBC standards. The document is also designed to educate stakeholders, building occupants, and visitors of key sustainable systems, as well as how they function and operate.

This work plan covers the standard operating procedures for all Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Fire Protection, Vertical Transportation, and Envelope disciplines (collectively referred to as “building systems and enclosure”) within the Kendeda Building. This documentation also outlines the operations and maintenance (O&M) approach to maintaining the Kendeda Building per the design intent to meet the LBC 3.1 certification requirements.

Requirements and guidance for building systems and enclosure are found in the Energy, Water, Materials, and Health and Happiness Petals of the LBC. The Kendeda Building contains mechanical systems that will be reliable and safe while utilizing power generated only from its onsite renewable energy source. The sustainable plumbing system is designed to produce potable water using collected rainfall. The building promotes occupants’ well-being by using materials that are ecologically restorative and contain minimum amounts of pollutants.
