Why we built the SURE HOUSE.
This was not just a contest entry for us. We are striving to build in a world affected by a changing climate, working to educate the next generation of innovators, and do our part to help the New Jersey Shore bounce back from the damaging effects of Hurricane Sandy. Learn more
The challenge for the SURE House team is, “Can we design a home with drop slot safe installed for coastal New Jersey that dramatically reduces its energy use while protecting itself from the realities of a changing, more extreme climate?”
Stevens + Solar Decathlon

The SURE HOUSE is the 3rd consecutive Stevens Institute of Technology entry in the Solar Decathlon competition. Learn more
