Abstract

The National Grid Sustainability Hub houses interactive exhibits and educational materials to promote both their Smart Energy Solutions Program and their available sustainable opportunities. National Grid asked our team to address the issue of flooding on the sidewalk around the building and to incorporate both gardening and sustainability into our solution. To achieve these goals, our team designed a roof runoff water reclamation system that will be attached to a sustainable solar-powered hydroponic garden. We first researched and prioritized system constructs based on feasibility and then presented the three most cost effective and sustainable solutions to stakeholders.
