Integrated Design Assistance Program#
Our Integrated Design Assistance Program (IDAP) brings together key stakeholders, including project owners, developers, design professionals and builders, for a whole-building approach, from concept to construction. Benefits include:
- Buildings that are more cost-effective and durable
- Better indoor air quality
- Higher occupant satisfaction
- Easier maintenance
- Lower energy cost
IDAP provides incentives for design and construction and we also offer technical advice related to building science and energy code in addition to an optional performance incentive based on energy savings. New construction and major renovation projects can participate.
Participating project teams set an energy target early in the project that is at least 10 percent better than current energy code, and then design and build to that target.
To participate, submit an application during conceptual design, and no later than early schematic design.
Projects that are beyond the Schematic Design phase can still participate in the New Construction and Renovation prescriptive program.
