Design Assistance

Rocky Mountain Innosphere, 320 E. Vine Dr., Fort Collins

Financial incentives for building owners and design teams are available for participating in the Integrated Design Assistance Program (IDAP). The program is based on the Architecture 2030 Challenge® and provides design, construction and performance incentives. New construction and major renovation projects can participate.

Participating project teams set a Target Energy Usage Index (EUI) early in the project using Energy Star® Target Finder and then design and build to that target. A year's worth of post-occupancy EUI data is collected to confirm the Target EUI is achieved.

To participate, application in conceptual or early Schematic Design is required. Projects that are beyond the Schematic Design phase can still participate in the New Construction and Renovation prescriptive program.
