One page article on preplanning for buildings with half-day planning meetings of contractors and owners.

What, exactly, is an eco-charrette? It’s an intense meeting, half a day or more, in which all participants in a building design project focus on ideas for efficient use of energy and resources in the new building. The group generates goals and then develops strategies for accomplishing those goals. Eco-charrettes, also called sustainable design or environmental design charrettes, are becoming a common element in the design of high performance buildings and have been used successfully on some of the most progressive buildings in the Pacific Northwest.

Audience: adults, realtors, engineers, construction contractors, building specialists.
