Heriot Watt University wants to lead the way in clean, low-carbon digital construction. We’re putting together a bid to complete in the exciting ‘Solar Decathlon Middle East’ competition in November 2020 (SDME 2020).

Our bid will involve students, researchers and partner companies in designing, fabricating, testing and finessing a single-family home to be constructed in Dubai at the World Expo in 2020. Over a period of months, this home will welcome several thousand visitors: and compete against other entries in ten discrete competitions, to identify the winning, most innovative and low-energy home.

We’re excited to share our journey with you through this website.
