Postcharrette Followup

Post-charrette follow-up is as important as the charrette itself. There is a tendency to feel that the green issues were fully addressed during the charrette. In truth, many decisions must be made as the project moves into the design development and construction document phases. Chapter 3 provides detail on recommended best practices in green affordable housing design and outlines many of the interrelationships between building systems, materials, air quality, and environmental protection that should be taken into consideration. Major efforts following the charrette are research into the viability and cost of various green strategies identified in the charrette. After the research has been completed, decisions can be made about the final pool of green strategies, systems, and materials.
