The final deliverable for your project experience is a project report or presentation. Your research is based on a real building or project site, for which you will develop designs, recommendations, and plans. This is an opportunity to go deep on a topic you find interesting and experience the integrated design process first hand with a local field provider. Your field provider will provide access to local designers, builders, installers, and advisors. They will also provide access to local buildings and projects through tours and introductions. Field providers are there to support you, but SBAs are ultimately responsible for designing and completing their field project. We offer 2 project experiences.
