- IDP Theory & Practice - Lunch & Learn on the Integrated Design Process
- Dec 3, 2012
- Autodesk Toronto - Toronto
- Education (Chapter)
Dec 3, 12:00pm - 2:30pm, Autodesk Canada (210 King Street East)
The Theory and Practice of the Integrated Design Process (IDP) is a crash course in defining integrated design and positioning attendees to be implementing IDP in their practice. IDP has been alternately described as either the holy grail of green design, helping shave costs, increase building efficiency, and reduce conflict or as belaboured process where non-experts weigh in on topics beyond their understanding. This lunch and learn session aims to define what is, and is not, integrated design.
Drawing on extensive practical experience facilitating integrated design in both the public and private sector, this lunch and learn will quickly move from defining IDP to discussing how it can be applied to create high performance green developments.
- What IDP is and how it is different from traditional approaches;
- The benefits of IDP and why it is critical for achieving sustainable design;
- How to generally structure an IDP process and the elements of which;
- Who needs to be involved, when and why;
- Key success factors to apply IDP;
- Local implementation (case studies) of IDP; and
- Local tools, resources, incentives, programs, contacts, etc. to apply IDP, including the Savings By Design program.
