IDP: In Practice

Integrated design streamlines the design process from project onset to collaborate and co-create a project that is more inclusive, holistic and considers a variety of risks up front. Our manual provides practical, hands-on tools and applications for introducing IDP to your organization.

Why IDP?

Integrated design or integrated planning and design is the concept of having a multi-disciplinary team work together from project onset to collaborate and co-create a project that is more inclusive, holistic and considers a variety of risks up front.

Rather than the traditional approach of distinct planning, design, and construction teams, each of whom operate in a “black box” passing a project along from phase to phase, the concept is to have one integrated team work together to consider risks and opportunities.
