Greening the O’Brien House Featured by CGI U
UMM’s Greening the O’Brien House project was featured in a recent e-newsletter from the Clinton Global Initiative University. President Huggins had the opportunity to sit down and answer some questions from CGI U about the project.
The Greening the O’Brien House project aims to transform the historic O’Brien House, the traditional residence of the University’s president, into a twenty-first-century showcase home for sustainability. The house will serve as a demonstration model to teach students and community members how to renovate an old home with practical, economical steps toward energy efficiency and sustainability. The project will update the home’s heating, electrical, and roofing systems, one module at a time. When the installation of each module is complete, UMM students will go out into the community and help with the actual renovation work at homes throughout Washington County.
