Environmental Improvement Initiative | EPICS @ Purdue
We develop sustainable solutions for environmentally centered community projects.
Projects
Indiana Veterans' Home - Energy Audit
The Commandant's home is a 100+ year old building with great historical significance. The goal of this project is to develop a solution to reduce heat loss (make the house more energy efficient) and allow for a comfortable living environment. The team must also consider guidelines and regulations regarding historical homes involving preserving the character of the building.
Indiana Veterans' Home - Reflection Pool
Indana Veterans' Home wishes to install a reflection pool to highlight the Fallen Soldier statue, as well as install memorial bricks in a display. The team is responsible for the design and prototyping of the structures, as well as identifying suitable contractors.
Northview Church - Outdoor Recreation
Northview Church would like the team to develop its unused land into an outdoor recreation area which includes a garden, patio, and playground. This is to help aid the church's mission to "connect people with God, and people with people."
