The methodology behind ESD’s integrated design approach is to establish performance goals for a project, design for the climate, reduce thermal loads, use energy-efficient systems and apply best technologies.
Ken Griffin talked about the types of analysis ESD performs with the purpose of improving the built environment during his AIA Building Analytics & Integrated Design Practice presentation to students at the Illinois Institute of Technology on Oct. 25. He demonstrated how at ESD we take each project and optimize its own set of unique performance variables for our clients so they can make informed design decisions with all of the data needed to achieve the building or development performance goals.
Griffin spoke to students at the Armour College of Engineering at the invitation of ESD’s Julide Demirdoven. She teaches BIM courses at the school.
