  • Chang to Co-Lead Living Building Pilot Project

    Brook Byers Institute for Sustainable Systems Deputy Director, Michael Chang, will lead an undergraduate research team with Earth and Atmospheric Sciences Undergraduate Coordinator Dana Hartley.  Eight Sustainable Undergraduate Research Fellows (SURFers) will develop an interactive dashboard for the Georgia Tech Living Building.  Real-time data on energy and water usage, indoor health metrics, and other site specific factors, will be formatted for display in an interactive monitoring system.  This prototype is envisioned to interface with the operations, activities, and prevailing conditions with the Living Building as a center of reference.  From there information can be shown as users expand their reference frame outward through the scales of the campus, the city, the region, and the globe.
