Our Teams

July 6, 2009

Today we start the beginning of the Summer Prototype Team. With materials still rolling into the office, we are preparing for various scenarios. Our aluminum angles showed up on Thursday and gave us exciting hopes we will be gaining muscle mass this month.

Edgar and James are excited and eager for the new faces interested in this jump-start of a project. Neil, Faete, and myself will be leading teams along with our professors. We have much to accomplish in these few days given to deconstruct, place outside and wrap tightly with these new materials. But spite the arrival times of goods; we will continue to find ways of becoming inventive with what is available.

Jon, from Civil Engineering, accomplished many tasks on his first day. “I was assigned to the HVAC/Mechanical team. The first order of the day is to get accurate dimensions of the project space and the HVAC equipment which will be installed. I worked on a preliminary conceptual design for the system, focusing on thorough circulation of air through the space and locating the system components to fit into the empty space. After developing an initial design, i began preparing rough draft shop drawings.”

Don’t forget that we are excited about the Lighting design team from Finland coming middle of the term with our friend Julle Oksanen.

An exciting day to start collaborations.
All of the sub teams are gaining speed from the complex tasks ahead. Taking grip to the details of this process will be an encouraging goal to seek by the end of the term. Wish us luck!

    Day 1 – Met the rest of the students and we were all assigned to teams. I was assigned to the HVAC/Mechanical team.
