Virtual 3D Design Charrette Meeting Rooms
COVID 19 plus travel costs have made in-person meetings risky and expensive. However, the need to have productive integrated team meetings, also known as design charrettes, has dramatically increased as planning for future disasters has become a priority. Today's damaged or destroyed cities and buildings need to be rebuilt better than before or risk repeated destruction.
Planning for any type of project can be made more productive and successful when designed by a team of interested individuals who contribute their expertise toward producing a better end result. Creating an online virtual 3D meeting room that facilitates productive design charrettes is the current focus of DesignCharrette.com and ongoing details will be posted on this website over time.
Perhaps now is the best time to plan your next project, large or small. Please peruse the information on this website about commercial and residential projects, if that is what you have in mind.
Basically a "Design Charrette" is a meeting or session focused on a particular project or set of projects with the goal of having a knowledgeable group of people offer suggestions and professional experience with the intent of making the final outcome better.
Design Charrettes have been used for decades by architects, engineers and other professionals to obtain better results for projects of all kinds, including: Rebuilding after disasters, (including pandemics caused by viruses), designing submarines to satellites, and actually every type and size of project.
Design Charrettes are used by the military, municipal and federal governments, private industry, international organizations to neighborhood improvement groups and the list goes on and on.
