Services Offered by IDC
The Integrative Design Collaborative is a consortium of advanced practitioners who serve as resources, coaches, and program managers to help project teams achieve increasingly higher levels of environmentally responsible design – from Green to Sustainability to Regeneration
We assist clients and design teams to achieve cost effective green to whole system design in complex projects. These range from master plans and buildings to regions, watersheds, and communities.
We promote understanding of the benefits of human activity in healthy participation with natural systems by structuring the design process to achieve affordable and deeply effective ecological systems design.
It's all about applying systems thinking to address the whole system – not just the pieces. It's just good design.
We work with Owners, Facilities Managers, Architects, Engineers, Landscape Architects, System Ecologists, and Builders.
Project types: from the largest to the smallest projects – our focus is advancing our client’s design and management process from current practice to higher levels of environmental stewardship.
*The ‘levels of green’ are listed in the Design Gradient to illustrate the practice of advancing sustainable design to higher orders of effectiveness.
