Hickory Consortium 2001 Final Report

NREL, Paul Norton (NREL Technical Monitor)

Research output: NRELSubcontract Report


As with all Building America Program consortia, systems thinking is the key to understanding the processes that Hickory Consortium hopes to improve. The Hickory Consortium applies this thinking to more than the whole-building concept. Their systems thinking embraces the meta process of how housing construction takes place in America. By understanding the larger picture, they are able to identifyareas where improvements can be made and how to implement them.
