The Students and Faculty of the Engineering Department at San Antonio’s University of Incarnate Word originally designed the House of C.A.R.D.S. for entry in the Solar Decathlon in Washington. It was originally designed by the Class of 2008, and the students were integrated in both the design and the eventual construction. Over the Summer of 2011, UIW engaged Operative Ventures to help complete the project by the beginning of the Fall Semester. Wayland Roed led our team to build the custom exterior metalwork and decking, including the porches, handicapped ramp, and solar panel infrastructure.
