The intern will be actively participating in research on the availability and feasibility of green components for a variety of new construction affordable housing projects. Interns will participate in the planning and execution of greening charrettes with the project design team and project specific technical assistance and cost benefit analysis related to energy and water conservation, indoor air quality, low impact site design, and building durability. Interns will learn to evaluate project plans and specifications for greening and will be involved in the integration of renewable energy technology on select projects. The intern will also assist in New Ecology with additional research projects on sustainable development topics as they arise during the course of the summer. Administrative duties will be limited. New Ecology is a small office with no reception, mail room or copy room. All New Ecology staff are responsible for managing their own in-coming calls and correspondence. Any administrative tasks are directly related to project responsibilities.
