Design at every stage
The Integrated Design Commission SA believes that the opportunity for design to influence outcomes is best done early. By applying the design lens 'up front' the project scope can be fully understood and its potential fully explored and realised.
Integrated design understands the inter-dependence of design as a process of enquiry; planning as a process of defining; and development as a process of delivery.
Truly integrated design has the power to create adaptable, enduring, flexible, resilient and transformational built environments. An integrated approach balances long term value over first cost.
The Commission is taking a leadership role to inform design and planning through new initiatives such as the introduction of Design Review Panels.
