MaTrID Impact of Integrated Design on scope of services and remuneration models

MaTrID logo

INTEGRATED DESIGN (ID) is a design procedure which considers the building as a whole system with the aim of optimizing it throughout the lifecycle. ID can be used to reach high ambitions by developing, discussing and evaluating a scheme using a multidisciplinary team from the initial design phases. ID is a proven approach for achieving high‐performance buildings with a good indoor environment without sacrificing architectural quality or resulting in excessive costs.

The MaTrID team is developing informative materials to support designers, developers and constructors. This document is an Annex to the MaTrID ID Process Guidelines. Starting from the overall description of the elements and processes that are constitutive for Integrated Design, this document specifies:

  • The adaptions in the scope of services which are required when an ID process is applied;
  • The impact on the remuneration of designers which emerge from ID.

Therefore, the document contributes to operationalizing the concept of ID by describing the impacts on designers and by presenting ways how to deal with these impacts in design practice.
