The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design demonstrates Georgia Tech’s commitment to using the campus as a living, learning laboratory for hands-on educational and research opportunities. The project will be a model for the region and similar environments around the world.
As a leader in education and innovative research, Georgia Tech is uniquely positioned to design, build, and operate a Living Building Challenge certified project. Anticipated to be the first Living Building Challenge certified building of its kind in the Southeast, The Kendeda Building will showcase the Institute’s best-in-class knowhow by drawing upon a variety of expertise on campus including academics, research, operations, and students. By educating our students, faculty, staff, and other future thought leaders on these principles, we are creating the next generation of planners, designers, and builders - all capable of transforming the built environment in years to come.
Professors Marc Weissburg and Emily Weigel from the School of Biological Sciences, along with Georgia Tech students, are studying the impact buildings and construction have on biodiversity in the ecosystem.
