Michigan Energy Options Demonstration Center
East Lansing, Mi - Summer 2010 to Present
Michigan Energy Options originally contracted me to create several renderings for a Case Statement to help generate sponsors for renovation. After a few months of assisting with the development process, I started with them full-time. In my new role I helped with facilitating relationships with sponsors and donors, renovation details and design, LEED strategy and documentation, marketing material development and construction for the Demonstration Center. During this time I also worked on several other programs at MEO and managed a team of 12 interns and employees.
One of the great things about MEO is how they bring homeowners valuable information and resources on how to make their homes more efficient. The Demonstration Center exists as an interactive venue for learning about strategies residents can implement in their own homes. Because the greenest building is one that already exists, MEO is attempting LEED Existing Buildings, Operations, & Maintenance certification. Expect to hear more summer 2012 on progress.
