Eco-House Design Competition
This is the second annual Eco-House Design Competition, put on by the USGBC Idaho Chapter in partnership with the Boise Valley Habitat for Humanity (BVHFH). This competition provides an applied learning experience in the principles of integrated design, sustainability, innovation, social consciousness, as well as the LEED® Green Building Rating System™.
Both the USGBC Idaho Chapter and The Boise Valley Habitat for Humanity recognize that financially vulnerable individuals, families, and neighborhoods are particularly in need of the benefits that sustainable design and green building practices bring. This design competition challenges entrants to design homes that demonstrate both short-term and long-term affordability, a high quality of life for their residents, and replicable strategies that contribute to our understanding of how to build affordably, efficiently and with minimal impact on the environment.
