CNM Ingenuity is launching a program to provide paid internships for CNM students and Albuquerque-area job seekers to build “ecoMOD” homes – energy efficient, high-performing and cost-effective modular homes. This program will be created in collaboration with the University of New Mexico (UNM) School of Architecture.
Interns will build one home per year over the next two years of the grant. These homes will be placed in the vicinity of CNM’s Main Campus as affordable housing options for community members.
CNM students majoring in plumbing, carpentry, construction management, electrical and HVAC will be eligible for the internships. The two-year grant will fund 15 CNM interns and five community members who are seeking work in the construction industry.
The long-term goal for this collaborative effort is to make it sustainable for the future by establishing a network of partners across the state, including homebuilders, contractors, state organizations and non-profit housing organizations, that can work with CNM Ingenuity and ecoMOD to build and distribute units while incorporating paid internships.
This program will start in October 2018.
