Integrated planning is manifested in simultaneous and interdisciplinary principle of operation by all those participating in the planning process.
For complex tasks, such as the pursuit of sustainability, undoubtedly requires an integrated planning as a contemporary answer. And it is also one of the requirements for an outstanding success. The technical development in architecture and engineering necessitates interdisciplinary solutions. Integral planning can proceed only by simultaneous cooperation of all participants in the planning process. The “ifes GmbH” owned this innovative methodology already a long time before. For more than two decades, we advise architects, engineers, contractors and clients in all phases of planning a building and we moderate this common dialogue.
Benefits and Earnings by Integral Planning
Especially in the beginning of complex projects, the integrated and well-presented basic evaluation is a requirement for
- a clear definition of objectives
- high planning certainty
- less planning changes
When conventionally and integrally planned projects are examined and one compares the time at which the highest level of information during the project is achieved, this will expose a significant difference: conventionally planned projects reach their maximum level of information between the approval planning and preperation of assignment phase, while the integral planning already in the base estimates reaches its maximum level of information in phase of preliminary design at the latest.
In summary it can be stated that integrated planning:
- shortens planning times
- reduces project costs
- minimizes operating costs
- shows energy savings potential
- reduces emissions
- finds the most economical solution for new construction and renovation
