Team Daytona Beach: Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and Daytona State College
For the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2017, Team Daytona Beach presents the BEACH (Building Efficient, Affordable, and Comfortable Homes) House. The BEACH House is a forever home that has universal appeal for a small family with the desire to live sustainably without sacrificing comfort. Passive, energy-neutral technology is incorporated throughout the house and designed to perform in Florida’s hot, humid climate. The BEACH House design is grounded in sustainability, aiming to meet the needs of today while not sacrificing the needs of tomorrow. This idea is the foundation of the forever home design plan, allowing the homeowners the freedom to grow and stay in the house as long as they wish.
