Georgia Institute of Technology dedicated the $30 million Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design in October of 2019 in Atlanta. Designed by Lord Aeck Sargent & The Miller Hull Partnership, the 47,000-sf facility provides two 64-person classrooms, a maker space, four class labs, a conference room, offices, and a 176-person auditorium. Featuring advanced building systems, photovoltaic arrays, and composting toilets, the self-sustaining building will annually generate more onsite electricity than it consumes, and collect and harvest more water than it uses. A rooftop terrace accommodates a honeybee apiary and a pollinator garden. Construction began in 2016 on the facility, which is expected to attain Living Building Challenge 3.1 and LEED Platinum certification. The project team included construction manager Skanska USA, fan manufacturer Big Ass Fans, civil engineer Long Engineering, structural engineer Uzun & Case, and MEP engineers Newcomb & Boyd and PAE.
