What is the Integrative Process?
The overall process for LEED Certification is different than for most buildings; it requires the architect, contractor, engineers, and all other stakeholders to work together from the start of the project. They try to find connections between what they want in the building and all possibilities and costs of the physical and mechanical systems in order to create the highest building efficiency, human comfort, and environmental benefit.
You are a part of many systems where what happens to one part affects every other part; family, school, work, our environment are all systems. How can this kind of thinking help you and other members in each of the systems to which you belong?
