Integrative Design Saves Money, Productivity and Value

Sustainable communities combine energy efficient buildings, transportation systems, sustainable landscaping, and quality of life. Integrative design of energy use can cut costs, increase productivity and improve quality of life. Here's how, according to the Rocky Mountain Insitute.

Find green business solutions

The Rocky Mountain Institute is, in my opinion, the best sustainability design organization in our country.  They deal with an integrative design approach to reduce energy, improve quality of life, productivity and optimize systems.

Great design optimizes allthe parts in a complete system.  Setting the goal comes first -- and the best goals are those arrived at with input by all participants -- from design through operations.  That's system design ... or integrative design.  Elements like comfort, cost, traffic, beauty and healthful environments are optimized as part of the overall building and landscape design.

This video is an indepth view of their project approach.  I learned new tactics, and you might find some of their projects ar near you -- so that you can see their work in operation.
