Creating sustainable built environments cannot be a one-person show. That’s because achieving sustainability goals requires tapping into synergies between different building components, and team members need to align their expertise towards common goals. A conventional process, where work gets passed down from the architect to other consultants to contractors and so on, leaves no scope for such collaboration.
On the other hand, an integrative process facilitates different disciplines to collaborate as one integrated team and is therefore the most crucial step in a green building project. It lays down multiple channels of communication, goal-setting methods, and feedback loops that ultimately result in high performance buildings. Integrative process is also a key component of the LEED rating system.
