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 develop the design for the approved project in accordance with the deliverables and deadlines set forth by the DOE. The main components of this course will include: architectural detail development; structural engineering coordination; mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection engineering and coordination; landscape design; building code analysis and compliance; physical model construction; and building information modeling. In addition, this course will support student communications and outreach efforts. Students in this course will work in partnership with students in the Pre-Construction Management course.
