The Batipa Field Institute has a vision to grow into a research station that thrives in the scientific community and in ecotourism. The goal of this project was to propose designs for sustainable energy and resource utilization for implementation at the institute. The final designs included installing a photovoltaic system and internet connectivity, utilizing excess teak wood, and developing a concept for a rainwater harvesting and photovoltaic support structure. This was accomplished through an iterative stakeholder oriented design process where communication allowed for the narrowing of research to achieve detailed final recommendations.
