The 37,000-square-foot Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design is an exemplary education and research building designed is a partnership between The Kendeda Fund and Georgia Tech.

Beginning with a very inclusive two-day super-charrette in fall 2016, the project has been designed for net-positive (105%) energy performance.

Energy, daylight and comfort modeling were an integral part of the design decision-making process. Measures include decoupled sensible and latent cooling, operable windows, triple pane glazing, daylighting, efficient LED lighting with controls and a campus-tied HVAC system.

The predicted EUI is at 32 kBtu per square foot per year, translating to a 17,000-square-foot photovoltaic array. The project will earn the full Living Building Challenge certification based on, among other things, measured net-positive energy performance during a one-year performance period after being occupied.

Learning Objectives

Attendees will be able to

  1. Apply an integrative design process in facilitating high performance
  2. Identify energy efficiency strategies that contribute to net-positive energy performance in the southeast
  3. Balance shading and daylighting concerns for achieving comfort and high performance
  4. Reconcile variables such as budget, schedule and stringent Living Building Challenge requirements
