The 2012-2013 Residential Sustainable Building Design Challenge seeks talented and responsible students to participate and compete in a sustainable building design challenge. The object is to engage in an improved, creative way of thinking and of designing sustainably. Design objectives should be based on sustainable, ecological and performance criteria rather than trends and aesthetics. Students will envision and design an affordable new home by incorporating all options that might generate workable energy and water conservation solutions to the project.
The participating Project Teams include a minimum of 5 students that will be assigned a licensed/registered Architect / Engineer that is a resident of Webb County to mentor them and supervise their design effort. The group project will commence during the summit and will continue throughout the school year.
The winning team will be presented a Certificate and Recognition by the Honorable State Senator Judith Zaffirini during the Laredo Environmental Summit 2013.
