The last day of construction was incredibly hectic, but we are happy to announce that we got approved by the organisation just within the deadline time! One of the organisers complemented us on our incredibly fast cleaning, between 22:00 and 23:00 heaven and earth were moved to completely clean our site and put the furniture inside. Unfortunately for the other teams, not everyone passed the check up in time.
To assemble a building in just 15 days is already a challenging task for 40 students with very little building experience. Add to this the theme of the Solar Decathlon Europe 2019 competition, renovation, and it starts getting a bit more complicated. However, we thought this challenge was not big enough yet, so we focussed on addressing issues faced currently by the Dutch Real estate sector.
The team has travelled to Hungary to start assembling the prototype here. It all started on Sunday the 23rd of June when the team took the bus to travel to Hungary. By this means of travel, we saved over 50% on CO2 emissions, save the planet! The next few days we explored Budapest and our new hometown for the coming month, Szentendre. After that we start with the assembly of the prototype, curious what we got up to?
It’s almost time for the MOR team to go to Hungary for the Solar Decathlon Europe 2019 competition starts. So what have we been up to the last few weeks? First of all, we built our prototype in Delft in order for the team to practice with building a super sustainably house of the future. Then we were able to show our prototype to our partners, the Mayor of Delft and our friends and family. The video below will explain the MOR concept and give you a sneak peek of the prototype!
After two months of building, we are finally there: the PV panels are placed, the solar chimney is mounted, the modules are built and the team is ready! Before leaving for Hungary for the Solar Decathlon Europe 2019, we would like to reveal our prototype too you. On the 3rd of June, the Mayor of Delft Marja van Bijsterveldt will officially open the prototype. We hope to see you in big numbers at our festive opening event.
The first month of site preparation and construction is done. It all started with an empty patch of sand and a month later we have finished building the concrete structure of our prototype. This MOR news will take you through our process of the first month on the construction site.
