Building Smart Using an Integrated Design Process
Integrated Design Process (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, cost and benefits that make this approach preferable to a conventional method.
