The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design
The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design at Georgia Tech is a partnership between The Kendeda Fund and Georgia Tech to build what is expected to become the most environmentally advanced education and research building ever constructed in the Southeast.
After three teams participated in an ideas competition, Georgia Tech selected the team of Lord Aeck Sargent and The Miller Hull Partnership to design the project.
The building will be designed to attract and educate students, faculty, staff and visitors. The built environment will be thoughtfully integrated with the surrounding natural environment and will leverage and support the planned campus-wide Eco–Commons. Spaces will include classrooms, class labs, research labs, laboratory support areas, offices, “maker” studio space, and student breakout spaces for group activity and individual study.
In addition to seeking Living Building certification, the project is targeting LEED Platinum certification.
Currently under construction for a summer 2019 occupancy. Learn more about the project on our blog.
