IDP is a collaborative design approach that is intended to optimize performance, cost, occupant comfort and resilience of a residential building. It involves engaging the builder and their team of designers, mechanical contractor and energy advisor at the conceptual design stage. IDP examines the needs and performance of a building throughout its lifecycle; from design, construction through to operation, with the goal of ensuring that multiple objectives of the builder are met.
