MaTrID Client Guide - Introduction to Integrated Design

Share this Post:

Integrated (Energy) Design (ID) is the general term for a collaborative approach 
aimed at optimising a scheme’s design so that it can better deliver the Client’s 
brief whilst requiring the minimum operational energy. 
ID brings benefits cost and risk reduction to clients adopting the approach, as 
well as to end-users occupying the buildings. This summary is intended to 
introduce these benefits and encourage clients to embed ID as a requirement 
in the appointment documents of their building design consultants.

achieving the requirements of the Nearly Zero Energy Buildings
Performance Objective.
