Abstract

The traditional way of designing in the Building Industry has to change to meet the new demands for a sustainable built environment by society. In order to enhance team design in the most crucial phase for innovation, the conceptual design phase, a design method is proposed: Integral Design. Integral design was developed from Methodical Design. This design method uses morphological charts which are transformed to a morphological overview by the design team as a framework to support the design process itself. The design method was tested in workshops held in cooperation with the Dutch Society of Architects and the Dutch society of building services engineers. It is important to bring in the specific knowledge and experience of the different engineering consultants (structural, building physics and building services) besides the architect from the very first moment of a design project to increase the possibilities for sustainable innovation. It proved that the design method applied in the workshops had a strong positive effect on the number of alternative generated by the design teams.
