Georgia Tech’s Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons (CULC) is an education building allowing for the integration of new and existing initiatives in an enriched and supportive environment. The mission of CULC is to create a nexus for experiential learning, technology, and information resources. Toward that end, Georgia Tech communicated a desire for the CULC to both educate and inspire its occupants and push the envelope of environmental sustainability. Through an integrated design process beginning with months of early design phase collaborations with Georgia Tech, the architect, and the engineering team, a design that ultimately achieved LEED Platinum Certification was realized.
Design features incorporated into the CULC included:
