Solar Decathlon 2011

City College of New York and Sciame Team Up at the 2011 Solar Decathlon

This past October The City College of New York was one of 20 colleges selected throughout the world to participate in the Department of Energy’s biannual Solar Decathlon Competition. This competition challenges these selected schools to design, build and operate solar-powered houses that are cost effective, energy- efficient and attractive. With the help of Sciame’s Construction and CM services, City College aka “Team New York” successfully developed, built and shipped down a Solar Roof Pod concept that was displayed on the National Mall in Washington, DC.

The Sciame team would like to thank all who helped out with this successful project, especially Turner Construction, TDX Construction, STV Inc., Five Star Electric, WDF Mechanical Inc, Schneider Electric, Cardella Waste Services and The NY Roofing Company.
