Sustainable Residential Design students present projects

Students in AR218 Sustainable Residential Design presented their final projects this week to professionals in the field gaining valuable feedback and insights for future development. The students were tasked with designing a single family house that is energy, water and resource efficient. The students calculated the water use on site and for the interior use while incorporating strategies to reduce water consumption in each project. To address both resource and energy use, each group worked to develop an efficient plan that reduced square footage while developing a wall detail to show the construction of the home. Each student had an opportunity to research and implement a sustainable strategy in their group project ranging from gray water reclamation, passive solar, to natural ventilation.

Three students present their project to students seated in a classroom. They stand next to a video screen that says: "Saugatuck Home."
