Sustainable Design Collaborative Atlanta (SDCA), a team of representatives from the diverse building professions, collaborates on one specific community outreach project each year. As the selected project, SDCA will work side by side with leadership from ArtsNow and Barrow County School System to create a vision and plan for execution of their project: the Center for Innovative Teaching (former Russell Middle School).

SDCA has volunteers from diverse professional backgrounds inclusive of: design research, architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, engineering and construction. All hold a passion for advancing sustainability efforts with the built environment and enriching our community at large. They are a volunteer driven organization with members representing eight diverse building community organizations. They are connected by their desire to provide professional design services to the 99% of the human race that does not normally have the opportunity to fund these types of services. In 2010, they began awarding and completing one pro-bono project each year.
Congratulations to Pamela Walker, CEO/President of ArtsNow and Chris McMichael, Superintendent of Barrow County School System for being selected as this year’s SDCA project!
Per SDCA’s standard procedures, this collaborative work will begin immediately with completion in Summer 2017.
