A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL OUR SPONSORS!
With the support of ISD alumnus, George Yonke (MechSE ‘17), ISD Build and Design Team are partners with ARUP for design mentorship in the following disciplines: Mechanical/ HVAC, Electrical/PV, Plumbing, Structural, and Civil/Landscape. Each team has had full design reviews as well as individual meetings with their respective disciplines to get industry support. In addition to design mentorship, the ARUP team hosted a guest lecture to present to ISD students about Who ARUP is and what the firm does for students interested in full time or internship positions.

MWE’s Chicago office provided their services pro bono for the creation of the nonprofit, Build Solar, Inc. Having a nonprofit run by a Board of Directors on the Executive Board allows the team to work with external partners and sponsors for the Solar Decathlon Build Challenge. Without this nonprofit, the opportunity to donate the Build Challenge’s homes would not be possible.
