The Market Potential Jury reviews and evaluates team deliverables and the model home.
UC Santa Cruz
Cal Poly Pomona
Team did a wonderfully thorough market analysis in their jury brief, and they had a great website design. Their home was designed and constructed well, as well as applicable to a wide market.
They defined a large market that was served well by their customizable design and assembly. The team put together a strong jury brief and website.
Lack of input from team members did not give us enough background to adequately judge this project. We appreciate the jury brief, but the website did not give enough information about the business plan or market potential.
We love this team’s program for education in the construction industry. The demand for these types of skills is hard to overstate.
Project was difficult to judge without necessary jury brief, and the website lacked clear information about the project. The On-Site team presented project and concepts well.
The team’s flexible design and ease of assembly make their product applicable to a very wide market. The large variety of floor plan options gives huge opportunity to a wide variety of needs. Very thrilled to see where the project is going and who it was designed for.
Interesting concept, but no jury brief or website was provided for the jury to make an informed decision.
They defined their market niche well and designed to it. We really liked the novelty of being able to put the house on any lot and to be self-sufficient. The idea of a greenhouse can provide so many attributes to the livability of the property.
