Integrated Diagnostic Process

 

Much like the Integrated Design Process, the Integrated Diagnostic Process is a process of analysis in which multiple disciplines and seemingly unrelated aspects of analyzing an existing building are integrated in a manner that permits synergistic benefits to be realized.

 

 

In order to bring this integrated diagnostic process full circle, Leedlab partnered with USGBC Center for Green Schools, consultants who volunteered their services, and the Administration and Facilities Departments at the Catholic University of America. 

“Firms must be able to attract talent over a wide range of experience, while appealing to younger workers who are strongly motivated by environmental issues.”
