Using an Integrated Design Process
Wednesday, April 8
Learn how an Integrated Design Process (IDP) can ensure greater project success. IDP is a collaborative design approach that is intended to optimize performance, cost, occupant comfort and resilience of a residential building. It involves engaging the builder and their team of designers, mechanical contractor and energy advisor at the conceptual design stage. IDP examines the needs and performance of a building throughout its lifecycle; from design, construction through to operation, with the goal of ensuring that multiple objectives of the builder are met.
The seminar will:
- Explore the structure of IDP
- Discuss applications to various building types
- Demonstrate case studies from across B.C.
- Share experiences with IDP from outside B.C.
Join us to learn about the unique steps, timelines, costs and benefits that make this approach preferable to a conventional process.
