FLEXIBLE SUSTAINABLE PROCESS INNOVATION: INTEGRAL BUILDING DESIGN METHODOLOGY
There is a growing awareness of sustainability that leads towards knowledge transfer and research between companies and the Dutch knowledge and research institutes within the building industry. The principles of the IFD (Industrial Flexible Dismountable) concept aim at an integrated approach within the design process to reach a maximum level of integration between designers from different disciplines. A newly developed methodology for structuring integral design processes enables design team support during designing and further stimulates exchange of ideas and concepts. This approach is tested within a professional context of a building design project.
