Post-disaster Housing in Weed, California

In September 2014, the Boles Fire broke out in Weed, California destroying 516 acres and 157 structures.  Great Northern Services (GNS) of Weed, California sought out the resources of Cal Poly in rebuilding workforce housing.  The 2017 IPD Studio took up the cause with Architecture, Structural Engineering and Construction Management students designing and proposing how to build panelized housing that can be built at Cal Poly and transported up to Weed to be erected on site with their local community college- bridging resources and relationships throughout the state for a great cause and an exceptional educational opportunity for our students.
