Integrative Design Workshop

Integrated Design for Achieving Maximum Building Performance
Led by John Boecker, AIA, LEED® Fellow

This program will address the redundant and inefficient systems, unnecessary process time, wasted resources, adverse environmental effects, and lack of building performance.
This workshop will examine integrative design from conceptual underpinnings to actual case studies and a step-by-step process for implementation.

Participants will be able to:
• Apply the concepts that support an integrative design process.
• Demonstrate the benefits of an integrative process.
• Engage a process of shifting mental models towards whole systems thinking.
• Incorporate examples of integrative design strategies aimed at building performance.
