HISD Container Home Charrette

The USGBC Texas Gulf Coast region is working with the Houston Independent School District on a project to build a LEED-Homes Certified Container House at Booker T Washington High School.  The main goal is to engage students in the building process, from permitting to construction to documentation.  The first meeting, called a Design Charrette, was held with stakeholders on May 10.  At the charrette, the entire team was exposed to the project and goals and priorities were established.  Future meetings will be held with teachers at the school to develop the program for student involvement.  Stay tuned for future updates!
