The goal of this project was to create an innovative net zero energy building envelope design and construction health and safety plan for Team OCULUS of the Solar Decathlon Africa 2019 Competition. The design consisted of developing an envelope assembly that blended practical and innovative materials and attachment configurations. In addition, a construction site safety plan was generated to protect all personnel who enter the site during the construction phase. The building envelope group of Team OCULUS has provided an original design that incorporates local construction materials, Moroccan architecture, and makes energy conservation a priority. The result was an adaptable and sustainable envelope design and construction drawings for the Solar Decathlon Competition.
