LHAA and Takeoffs Construction Estimating Team With NREL on Solar Decathalon 2011

The Solar Decathlon is a competition in which students compete to design, build, and operate the most attractive, efficient, and affordable solar-powered house. The next Solar Decathlon competition will take place in the fall of 2011 and will be held in Washington, D.C. The U.S. Department of Energy, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, and several other private-sector partners are sponsoring the competition. There are 20 university teams participating.

LHAA and Takeoffs Construction Estimating's primary job is to ensure that each of the competing Solar Decathlon teams’ designs is judged fairly and consistently on the basis of construction cost. 

Additionally we are advising on the architectural quality of the documentation, compiling the product directory database, coordinating discrepancies between the teams design documents and the build home, and assisting with formulation the guidelines for the affordability competition.
