Team New Jersey to make precast concrete solar house reality
Date:7/12/2011

n green building at Rutgers University, the NJIT Solar Design Studio and System's Interface Studio, along with several classes offered in the landscape architecture school and engineering school.

"I decided to become a part of Team NJ because it is a wonderful opportunity to gain valuable real world experience that most graduates entering the workforce will not get," said Jennifer Switala, student leader of Team NJ at NJIT. "Being a part of Team NJ has allowed me to explore and creatively solve sustainable issues currently facing the housing industry."

Melanie Davidson, student leader of Team NJ at Rutgers University considers the long hours spent working on the ENJOY House to have been well worth the effort. "I believe that energy independence and global warming are two of the biggest issues facing my generation, so I was thrilled to find there was a project on campus devoted to promoting solar energy," Davidson said. "Programs like the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon is how real, meaningful change is accomplished. I am so proud to be involved with this team, and have learned an unbelievable amount in the process, about teamwork, efficient design, and organization."

Industry partners are an important part of Team NJ, donating their time to work with students and making ENJOY's innovative design a reality by supplying in-kind materials for the construction of the house, covering costs of designing and shipping the house, and providing valuable internships to students.
