Integrated Design results in buildings that have greater value to an owner, improved durability, better environments for occupants, and use less energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Four fundamental areas are the core behind the Integrated Design Process. All Firms, in some form or another, have them in some form.
The goal setting process of Integrated Design, the role of the architect in this process, defining and describing the role of the Owner’s Project Requirement (OPR) document, the Basis of Design (BOD), as well as, other tools used to set and track Project Goals are all integral to the process of Architecture.
Goals related to Net Zero Energy, Energy Use Intensity (EUI) and other performance-based metrics currently in use to assess energy performance are also integral to Architectural Practice; more so today and going forward with all the modeling required to execute a Design and get AHJ approvals.
The focus of this overview is important to understand delivery of nonresidential and multi-unit residential buildings with the coming California Code Changes requiring NZ, Daylighting, Energy Modeling, Envelope Design, etc.
