Build Team

2023 Build Challenge

Our 2022-2023 Build Team has just started the construction phase of the project, RENU Home. RENU Home aims to serve as an economical example for the development of affordable net-zero housing in suburban and rural areas. Thanks to corporate partnerships and grants, we are able to work with a general contractor to make this home a reality.
