Environmental design and charrettes have gone hand-in-hand for decades. In celebration of this successful fusion, the MSU National Charrette Institute and the Environmental Design Research Association (EDRA) are partnering to offer the NCI Charrette System course in conjunction with EDRA’s annual conference in Brooklyn. 

In honor of EDRA’s 50th anniversary, NCI will be hosting its signature NCI System™ Certificate Training in advance of EDRA’s annual conference. The training will be held at the conference venue from May 20-21, 2019, while the EDRA50 Brooklyn conference will take place May 22-26.

The NCI Charrette System certificate course is the core training on how to apply the NCI Charrette System™ and represents a collaborative project management system centered on the co-design process using charrettes. The interactive, hands-on course includes project assessment tools for gauging the length and cost of a charrette using a project budget alongside political considerations and design difficulty.

Also included in the case study-based training are conflict resolution tools, and high- and low-tech tools for stakeholder engagement. Participants will create project guiding principles, objectives and performance measures, a stakeholder analysis, charrette purpose and products, project roadmap, charrette ready plan, charrette schedules and estimate budgets for case study projects.  

For information and to register for NCI’s two-day course, visit NCI Training at EDRA Pre-Conference. Because of the case study and interactive nature of the training, the course is capped at 32 participants.

If you can’t make the certificate training, but are curious about charrettes, NCI will also be hosting a half-day intensive on May 22 at the conference where you can get an overview of the NCI charrette process and hear how others have applied it in unique ways. The NCI is also partnering on a session on May 24.
