NDSCS hosts Fifth annual Design Charrette

The North Dakota State College of Science Architectural Drafting & Estimating and Construction Management Technology students participated in the fifth annual NDSCS Design Charrette the week of March 10 - 14, 2014.

Students were split into teams and tasked with creating an entire set of construction documents for a four-bedroom duplex to be leased to individuals with mental and physical challenges. Nine teams of five members had numerous meetings with this year’s clients—the Eastern Dakota Housing Alliance and the Red River Human Services Foundation—to gather the necessary information and design requirements.

The weeklong charrette concluded the morning of Friday, March 14 when all teams presented their designs in the Bremer Bank Theatre in the Harry Stern and Ella Stern Cultural Center. Instructors, key community members, and Eastern Dakota Housing Alliance and Red River Human Services Foundation representatives were all in attendance to view the presentations and ask questions. All presentations included the viewing of floor and foundation plans, key features, estimates, schedules and renderings.

This is the first time NDSCS has teamed up with the Eastern Dakota Housing Alliance and the Red River Human Services Foundation. Ideas from all student designs will be taken into consideration for the ultimate collaboration for the development and construction of a home on the corner of 2nd Street and 4th Avenue South in Wahpeton, ND.
