A New Norris House 

07-19-2012 03:25 PM

Tricia Stuth, AIA, and Samuel Mortimer, Assoc. AIA, of the University of Tennessee in Knoxville use the data collected from the New Norris House's 52 monitoring sensors to discuss water efficiency, modular construction efficiency, community integration, and indoor environmental air quality.

Background: In 1933, the Tennessee Valley Authority created a model community in Norris, Tennessee as part of the Norris Dam construction project. A key feature of this New Deal village was the Norris House, a series of home designs built for modern, efficient, and sustainable living. In light of the 75th anniversary of the Norris Project, a design/build university team created a 21st century New Norris House. Collaborating with a large modular home builder and various regulatory bodies, the team completed the demonstration home and landscape in 2.5 years.
