Course Description

This course will focus on the Integrated Design Process.

The Integrated Design Process or IDP has been shown to produce more significant results than past conventional construction processes.

There is no single “right” definition for IDP. Rather, IDP describes a different, intentional way of approaching building and community design that offers a much higher likelihood of success than any other approach. This approach provides a holistic approach to the design of a building, as compared to the conventional design process where an architect and client agree on a design concept (based on a functional program), and the structural, mechanical and electrical consultants are then asked to implement the design and to suggest appropriate systems.

The Integrated Design Process is an iterative design philosophy that implements the synergy of team skills throughout the design, includes energy conservation measures and leads to a high level of system integration, to effectively minimize costs, reduce construction miscommunication, increase quality and meet agreed construction targets. 

Attendees in this session will learn about the Integrated Design Process, best practices, key partners in this process, and how to implement the process in your construction practices.
