MaTrID Tenants’ Guide - Introduction to Integrated Design

MaTrID logo

Integrated (Energy) Design (ID) is the general term for a collaborative approach aimed at optimising a scheme’s design in order that it might be better able to deliver a Tenant’s occupational requirements. The use of ID for the development of pre-let buildings brings benefits to the future tenants, as well as to the Client and team undertaking the design and construction. This summary is intended to introduce these benefits and encourage Tenants to embed ID as requirement in Agreement to Lease (pre-let) contracts with building developers. This approach is being promoted across Europe as a preferred means of achieving the requirements of the Nearly Zero Energy Buildings Performance Objective.
