CNM Ingenuity’s eco-friendly homebuilding program provides hands on experience as well as paid internships for CNM students and Albuquerque-area job seekers to build energy efficient, high-performance, and cost-effective homes. The current home build is in collaboration with the University of New Mexico (UNM) School of Architecture.
CNM students majoring in plumbing, carpentry, construction management, electrical, and HVAC are eligible for the internships. The program began with a two-year grant from PNM that funded 15 CNM interns along with five community members who are seeking work in the construction industry. The program also provides interns with industry-recognized certifications that will benefit them as they continue in the construction industries.
The long-term goal for this collaborative effort is to establish a network of partners across the state, including homebuilders, contractors, state organizations, and non-profit housing organizations, that can work with CNM Ingenuity student interns to build high performance energy-efficient.
