Georgia Tech has been at the forefront of sustainability since its inception in the 1880's. This is evidenced by the fact that the original brick buildings on campus were made from indigenous Georgia red clay, and Grant Field was the home to football, baseball and track. Fast forward to 2019 where we have just built the Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design, slated to be one of the most sustainable buildings in the southeast, on the path to meet the stringent requirements of the Living Building Challenge. Come learn about the evolution of Georgia Tech's 400-acre ecosystem and our commitment to sustainable campus development.
