The Integrative Design Process (IDP) is recognized by USGBC and Whole Building Design Guide to help stakeholders identify user needs and owner goals while saving on time, funds, and waste.
IDP is intertwined with the Preliminary Design Phase (PDP) as they both start as soon as the project is discovered. IDP differs from the Conventional Design Process where time, energy, and collaboration are less exhibited in the early stages.
IDP helps with whole-building thinking, allowing for synergies for full optimization from beginning through post-occupancy.
This is where Creative Interior Architecture (CIA) comes in. We create a Preliminary Design Packet that helps identify synergies, at the beginning of the project during the discovery phase for all stakeholders to have a clear visual on how to create a high-performance building for the health of people and planet.
The Preliminary Design Packet is a report that provides facts and professional opinions to assist stakeholders in making decisions regarding renovations, approval, and financing.
The report is organized in an outline format. The information is the best and most currently available at the time reports are completed. It is reviewed many times during preparation by the lead designer of CIA. Stakeholders, then, review for accuracy and completeness. We understand that these construction decisions can be very contentious, so every effort is made to produce a report that emphasizes codes and standards, minimizing opinions.
