We are excited to announce that The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design has won the 2022 Chrysalis Award for its category!

The Chrysalis Awards were created to support broadening the conversation between the green building industry and our green community. The awards support and recognize the people and projects within our community that represent the breadth of what sustainability means from a high-performance building to an urban farm feeding a neighborhood, to a material with a low carbon footprint, to a thriving green team within a company.

The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design is a $30M, eco-friendly, structure on 1.44 acres that is integrated into the EcoCommons space on the Georgia Tech campus. This 42,500 SF building is among the greenest in the world for being “net positive” with its use of energy and water. In other words, the Kendeda Building generates more energy and captures more water than it uses.

Lord Aeck Sargent was the architect for this project, and their very own Joshua Gassman accepted the award last night, November 15th. Mike Thurman, Long’s president, was in attendance for the awards ceremony and we certainly appreciate all the hard work and effort involved from all of our Civil Site staff for this project which was led by our VP of Civil Site Design Andrew Pankopp, PE, LEED AP Pankopp.

LONG worked in conjunction with the architect to prepare a site plan that met the goals for the project, as well as providing a wide array of services for this project which included Site Design, Stormwater Management, Permitting, Construction Documents, Construction Period Services, Land Surveying, and Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE).

We are very proud to have played a part of this important project and we would like to further congratulate Mike Thurman Aeck Sargent and the rest of the consultants on this amazing achievement!
