The Kalpataru Integrated Design Approach (IDeA)
IDeA requires an integrated team process in which the design team and all affected
members work together throughout the phase of the project and evaluate the design
for cost, quality of life, future flexibility, efficiency, overall environmental
impact, productivity, creativity and how the occupants will be enlivened. IDeA draws
from the knowledge pool of all the stakeholders across the life cycle of the project
from defining the need for a building through planning, design, construction, building
occupancy, and operations.
