Integrated Design for High Performance Buildings

Holistic Building Efficiency

By learning how every aspect of your building works together, you’ll be able to incorporate holistic efficiency into your next commercial project. Use these resources to help you look at your commercial renovation or new construction project to save you or your client energy, time and money. 

Integrated design improves the energy performance of buildings. The conventional definition of integrated design is that project team members from all disciplines work together early and often throughout the project design process.
