BLUElab at the University of Michigan is a student-run organization that works toward sustainable solutions to development problems at home and abroad. Toward this goal, BLUElab coordinates project teams that develop environmentally, culturally, and economically sustainable technologies.
The Living Building Challenge Team’s objective is to provide retrofit designs for local buildings to help them become self-sustaining structures as characterized by the Living Building Challenge. Started in 2013, the team is working with the Grocoff family to retrofit their historic net-zero energy home in Washtenaw County to achieve net-positive water usage.
