Employees build strong ties with community

Employees build strong ties with community

While most U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville projects usually take weeks or sometimes even months to complete, some Huntsville Center employees helped demonstrate how a home can be built in a weekend.

Huntsville Center’s Installation Support and Programs Management Directorate’s professionals were asked to participate in a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math event with the Alabama Center for Sustainable Energy and Foundations for Tomorrow for the Tiny Home Build weekend Aug. 8-9, at Sci-Quest in Huntsville, Alabama.

The ISPM Energy Team was the solar lead for the construction event. ISPM STEM professionals Raul Alonso, Dominic Ragucci and Jeffery Watts installed solar panels for a pre-existing tiny home and for the home that was built on site.

The team showed area students and the community how to build and power a tiny home in just two days. Tiny houses are often mobile houses of less than 500 square feet and feature multifunctional living spaces, energy efficiency and use of vertical space. During this free community event, visitors were able to see this transportable tiny home being built from start to finish and learn about what it takes to make the tiny living spaces.

Fraternity Works to Create Tiny Home Village for Homeless Vets

We’re honored to play a small part in this project!

The men of Phi Kappa Psi have created a Foundations for Tomorrow, a program to help provide Huntsville’s homeless vets with tiny homes. Alabama Center for Sustainable Energy has partnered to provide solar panels for the “tiny home” village, which will include a garden to be maintained by the residents. This is meant to be a step for these vets as they work towards improving their lives.

 

UAH Student Helps Homeless Vets with Tiny Homes

We’re ‘electrifying’ this community!

Alabama Center for Sustainable Energy is providing solar panels to help electrify a new village of tiny homes being created by a UAH student and his fraternity brothers.

They’re called tiny homes, but the idea is anything but tiny. A UAH student and his fraternity are working to raise enough money to help take homeless veterans off the streets and put them into their own homes.

Taylor Reed, Phi Kappa Psi president, has the plans in place, permits in the works, and volunteers to help create a village of the tiny homes. While tiny homes are no more than 300 square feet, their effect on the homeless could be massive.
