Sustainability case study
Skanska is building an $18.6 million, approximately 38,000-SF, fully certified Living Building Challenge v3.1 project on the Georgia Institute of Technology campus. This project will be a sustainability-focused facility supporting Georgia Tech's overarching goal to demonstrate a viable net-positive "urban" sustainable building in the Southeast. The facility, designed by the team of Lord Aeck Sargent and the Miller Hull Partnership, will support a dynamic education experience, a robust research platform and a public forum for community outreach.
The project will incorporate ambitious sustainability strategies such as:
- A salvaged item incorporated for every 500 square meters of building GSF- No red-list materials- A 12-month measurement period to measure actual performance- The facility will generate at least 105% of the energy that it uses- Rainwater collection to potable standards on site- Composting toilets- Urban agriculture
