I. Introduction

The Georgia Institute of Technology has a master services agreement with Gregory Pest Solutions. In formulating this Pest Management Work Plan for The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design, Gregory Pest Solutions was provided with the Cleaning Products Procedure and Analysis Report, available here, prepared by the International Living Future Institute (ILFI) for Georgia Tech. The report states that the following products are not within the scope of the Living Building Challenge and therefore may be used in The Kendeda Building:

  • Ant and Roach Killer
  • Spider and Scorpion Killer
  • Flying Insect Killer
  • Insect Repellant

 

II. Contact Information

Prior to performing pest management on The Kendeda Building site, Gregory Pest Solutions will notify Marlon Ellis, Area Six Maintenance Manager. If a building occupant notices an issue that needs resolution, then please contact Marlon Ellis:
