Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Integrated Design (ID) process has been recognized as an integrated approach to design process and prevailed in sustainable high performance building design. Though prevailing assumption is that a more integrated design process yields better performance results, measurement of integration is a largely unexplored area of research which can help participants in the ID process assess their integrated performance. In a previous publication, the authors investigated the relationship between the level of integration in the ID process and project performances using data from 55 LEED projects in which ID was employed. In this paper, the database and the assessment framework are used as a benchmarking tool to assess the ID process of ARCF (Animal Research Care Facility) project at the University of Washington Seattle campus. We expect that the research would contribute to the domain of ID process by providing an assessment tool to be used by project owners and service providers to evaluate their ID processes.
