Solar Decathlon, sponsored by The Department of Energy (DOE), is a competition to design and construct a solar-powered house. Middlebury College was recently selected to participate in the 2013 challenge. The objective of this studio course is to manage the logistical efforts in support of the project and produce a variety of deliverables as set forth by the DOE. The main components of this course will include: project cost estimating; preliminary construction scheduling (designing for critical path, travel, assembly, and dis-assembly); travel and transport planning, and health and safety plan development. Students in this course will work in partnership with students in the Design Development & Project Communications course. (Approval required; please contact Ashar Nelson prior to registration).
