Habitat for Humanity Design Competition

AIA Denver has partnered with CAD-1, Inc., to administer a design-build competition for Habitat for Humanity of Colorado/Blue Spruce Habitat for Humanity. The competition is currently underway, and the winning design and team will be unveiled in October 2011 at the AIA Colorado 2011 Practice & Design Conference. The construction of the home located in Kittredge, Colo., will be completed in 2012 by volunteers.

Several goals for this project include demonstrating that sustainable design and building practices are not luxuries, and creating a sustainable benchmark for Habitat for Humanity of Colorado and Blue Spruce Habitat for Humanity.
