Lab member extracurricular projects

  • Living Building Challenge: Making an Ann Arbor House Net-Zero Water
  • ACE-MRL members Devki Desai and Emily Herbert are working with a team of around 10 engineering students to retrofit a historic Ann Arbor home to achieve the water petal of the Living Building Challenge. By designing a rainwater catchment, storage and purification system as well as considering permeable pavement and bioswales, the group hopes to create an integrated, sustainable site-house water management system.

    This project was featured on TV20 Detroit News at 10.
