The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design

Kendeda Living Building

Join Shan Arora, Director of The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design, as we virtually stroll through this Living Building. The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design is the first building in Georgia, the first building of its size and scale in the Southeast, and 28th in the world to earn Living Building Challenge certification - the world’s most ambitious and holistic green building achievement. The certification from the International Living Future Institute independently verifies that The Kendeda Building is among the greenest in the world. The Kendeda Building is regenerative. Over the course of a year, it collects and infiltrates into the ground 15 times the amount of water needed for operations. Its photovoltaic system supplies over 200% of the building's energy needs. It gives back more than it takes from the environment and focuses on the health and happiness of occupants.

You will be amazed at what this building can do.
