The Greenbuild Legacy Project is an initiative that leaves a lasting impact on the host city of each Greenbuild International Conference and Expo. This year’s project selected by our local host committee was the Gensler’s “Roots to Success” initiative at Kelly Miller Middle School.
Located in the heart of Ward 7 of Washington, D.C., Kelly Miller Middle School is an institution with a rich cultural history and legacy. The school serves a diverse population of students, many of whom come from families with limited resources. The school is also situated in a food desert, where access to fresh, healthy food is limited.
The project aims to address these issues by making impactful improvements to two of the school’s existing spaces.
