All of the workshops developed and facilitated by ACHP are designed specifically for northern regions. These regions have very diverse climatic zones with extreme temperatures, as well as precipitation, soil, and cultural differences. All of these factors must be taken into consideration when designing workshop programs and building standards to meet the demands of every zone. For this reason, ACHP has developed manuals for each of the workshops, along with curriculum materials, to address these regional requirements.
