This thesis explores the development of a course of action for the sustainable renovation of the Lamar Dodd Building for the College of Environment and Design at the University of Georgia. The term sustainable design is defined and the decision making processes, methods of implementation, and technologies used in previous sustainable renovations are examined (Audubon House, Barney-Davis Hall, the Greening of Dana, and Oberlin University). A course of action for the renovation is then developed by looking at opportunities for sustainable decision making during the design process, followed by recommendations about how to use sustainable technologies as educational tools. I conclude by addressing the limitations of my research and suggesting possibilities for future exploration.
