The Integrative Design Process (IDP) is a powerful collaborative framework that aligns with an institution's culture to cost-effectively achieve any project's desired outcomes. After adopting IDP incrementally since 2003, Princeton University has created a full program, including a roadmap and in-depth training. A well-designed IDP supports participation and buy-in from users and effective collaboration in project teams-that means fewer changes during the construction documents phase and construction, smoother turnover, and better performance. In this session, we'll share our results and challenges and show how you can use an IDP to realize better value and outcomes for your campus project.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Assess your current design and construction processes to determine how they might benefit from an IDP.
  2. Identify specific tasks to incorporate into capital projects to support an IDP.
  3. Describe how an IDP can specifically address sustainability performance goals and user engagement challenges.
  4. Discuss opportunities with your leadership for continuous improvement in managing projects in more inclusive and integrative ways.
