The Georgia Institute of Technology announced the recent Living Buidling Challenge (LBC) certification achievement of the Kendeda Building. Globally recognized as one of the most rigorous green building standards in the world, the Kendeda Building is the first project to receive the LBC certification in the southeast region of the U.S. and is considered one of the greenest buildings in the world.
Kendeda Building performance metrics include:
Architects on the Kendeda Building project, Lord Aeck Sargent and Miller Hull, utilized the SMARTci 1 in 1 continuous insulation (CI) system to aid in achieving LBC certification. The SMARTci System’s composite metal hybrid (CMH) component material allows for the highest level of energy efficiency by reducing thermal-loss, as well as prevents moisture damage within the building envelope. Not only does this best practice continuous insulation system save on thermal energy and operating costs, but also extends the life of the building.
The SMARTci system components also consist of 25% post-consumer recycled and re-usable material. This prevents building material waste from going to the landfill. The LBC also screens for Red List materials or chemicals that pose a serious risk to human and environmental health. Eliminating the use of Red List materials can have long-term positive effects on the environment.
