2008-2009 UC Habitat for Humanity Project

As a student with previous involvement on UC Habitat for Humanity projects and having just completed a co-op where I was a sustainability consultant on Brad Pitt's Make it Right Project in New Orleans, I saw a great opportunity to integrate some affordable green building strategies into UC's Habitat for Humanity program and decided to make a presentation to some of the different stakeholders involved stating my case. They were very much on board with the idea and it led to a scholarship and GA position where I helped oversee the design and construction of UC's first ADA accessible, student designed, Habitat for Humanity project incorporating affordable green building strategies such as passive solar design, natural ventilation, and daylighting. Below are some images of the project completed during the 2008-2009 school year.
