Integrative design process

Integrative design process

A collaborative design methodology emphasizing knowledge integration in the development of a holistic design. The basis for integrated design practices are in the “whole-building design” approach. By viewing a building system interdependently as opposed to its separate elements (site, structure, systems, and use), this approach facilitates sustainable design practices and can serve to mitigate additional costs that result from “greening” at a later time. The integrated design process requires multidisciplinary collaboration, including key stakeholders and design professionals, from conception to completion. Decision-making protocols and complementary design principles must be established early in the process in order to satisfy the goals of multiple stakeholders while achieving the overall project objectives.
