Integrated design

A holistic design process that mobilizes multidisciplinary design input and cooperation, ideally to maximize and integrate environmental and economic life-cycle benefits. It is a process that delivers value by understanding impacts across a broad range of disciplines during design and can also describe a resulting solution or building-services system, which is the physical integration of services and building components. A developer or owner who commits to high performance and energy efficiency ensures that these commitments are recognized by each team member who undertakes whole-system analyses, considering interactions among systems, such as lighting, both electrical and natural, with mechanical systems, day-lighting with envelope systems, water supply and waste, with heating and cooling, and windows with ventilation and lighting.
