Habitat for Humanity Québec would like to acknowledge the exceptional work achieved by the Université de Sherbrooke mechanical engineering students and all the volunteers involved.
We’re extremely proud to have won the Housing Innovation Award as part of the national Habitat for Humanity Canada awards thanks to their involvement! We would also like to extend our special thanks to the City of Sherbrooke as well as all our partners who collaborated with us on this project.
This green building project was the brainchild of a group of 11 graduating students from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the Université de Sherbrooke looking to find the best ways to reduce the ecological footprint of new residential construction. Their goal was to design a house that would cost only $8 per month to heat, that is 90% less than a traditional house.
The project, developed in collaboration with Habitat for Humanity Québec, is the organization’s seventh project in Sherbrooke and was made possible thanks to the help of several sponsors and partners.
So, we welcome this award with great pride!
