Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design Tours
Out of an abundance of caution, we are pausing Kendeda Building tours until further notice. We will post an update on this website once tours resume.
The Georgia Institute of Technology invites you to take a tour of The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design (KBISD), which is one of the most innovative and sustainable buildings in the Southeast. The KBISD seeks Living Building Challenge (LBC) certification, the world’s most rigorous sustainable design and performance standard for buildings. For example, the building must produce more electricity than it uses on site through renewable sources, as well as collect, treat, and reuse more water than it needs on an annual basis. Some of the building’s technologies, materials, and building practices are a first for the Southeast.
The KBISD is the latest example of Georgia Tech’s commitment to sustainability. The building will serve as living-learning laboratory for sustainability in order to inspire change on the Georgia Tech campus and across the Southeast building industry.
