Integrated Design

IDEA specifically chose to become an Integrated Design Firm because we truly believe that the integrated design process results in a more complete and well co-ordinated building design solution for every project.

Integrated Design Process (IDP) is a collaborative method for designing buildings which emphasizes the development of a holistic design. The Integrated Design Process requires multidisciplinary collaboration, including key stakeholders and design professionals, from conception to completion. The building must be viewed as an interdependent system involving architectural, mechanical, electrical, structural, civil and landscape components along with the FF&E (furniture, fixtures and equipment.)

IDP is a “value added” method of design delivery. As a result, we have evolved into one of Ontario’s leading providers of integrated architectural and engineering design services.
