Founded in September 2019 by 3 female engineering students, Third Quadrant Design brings together passionate students from various disciplines to learn and act on our climate crisis. Our team utilizes innovative technologies to design and build regenerative high-performance buildings.


We are undefeated at The U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon® Design Challenge collegiate competition with our 2020 and 2021 submissions. 

As of now, we are working on our first design-build for the Solar Decathlon 2023 Build Challenge that will be built on UBC's Vancouver campus.
