Third Quadrant Design

Third Quadrant Design aims to support the design, education and adoption of high performance buildings and green infrastructure. We compete in the US Department of Energy’s Solar Decathlon (SD), an international collegiate competition that challenges teams to design and build energy efficient and innovative buildings. This team was founded at the end of 2019, and in the 2020 SD Design challenge Third Quadrant Design took first place in our urban single family division.

Our team offers members huge learning opportunities in the green building sector through our interdisciplinary integrated building design process, industry lunch and learn sessions, training in softwares such as Revit, OneClick, Therm, AutoCAD and HERS, and upcoming real life construction opportunities.
