Environment


environmental appropriateness and the compatibility of the designs, encourage communal participation and engagement. We incorporate our design tactic around the specific site and its characteristics. Always keeping Eco-Evaluation as the vanguard of our quintessential practice, I D & C welcomes external input and promotes team participation and resonance. Prior to the design, we assess the features of the site...in the case of new construction, or adapt existing conditions to a lucid, functional and aesthetically pleasing program. We keep an open mind and are flexible to achieve through design techniques the clients' goals and objectives.

Our team embraces the use of technology and its effects on “real-time” decisions. Through the use of modern computing environments and faster communication services (i.e., “cloud” based platforms, control tools, remote networking, etc.), we are focused on instantaneous responses for stake-holders' benefits.

Our CAD software includes conflict clashes, 3D modeling and the latest in visualization and photo-realistic/inoperable platforms and Building Information Modeling (a.k.a. BIM). These tools provide a level of comfort for consultant coordination, graphic representation and client interpretation. We are capable of reducing the production time required throughout the design phases and construction documents procedures. By encouraging the use of these and other technologically advanced production tools, we add another dimension of improved document coordination amongst consultants, team members, contractors and end users for the betterment of the successful project.

There are commitments from our team members and management that align with your expectations and objectives. We have control of our assigned personnel and their involvement with the assignments and contribution. Over the years, our staffs have worked on various types of structures effectively and as members of panels or as lead...albeit in different capacities. We look forward and welcome the challenge of participating with the University of Connecticut and contributing to your built environment.

Integrated Design and Construction is a full service Architecture, Construction Management and Sustainable Design firm based in Connecticut. We have completed nearly one million square feet...through direct and indirect work, throughout the Northeast region of the country.

Through these associations, “I D & C” has complimented Owners project teams within design, project management and construction administration.

There are allied professionals that we have established working relations with over the years and are now, on our team for professional services. Civil Engineering and Site Improvements is mastered through our relationship with the Freeman Companies. Together, we have orchestrated Architectural/Engineering design, “Front End” documentation, Construction Administration/supervision and Closeout coordination and oversight.

Since our inception in 2007, we have represented owner's intentions through Architecture, Construction Management/Administration new construction, renovation/fit-outs and restoration projects. Typically, we have acted on the Owners' behalf from inception through completion. We established...with the assistance of the client, the logistics of the project and the team's expectations during pre-design, design and construction documents, bidding, pre-construction and construction phases of a project. The submittals process, request for information, scheduling and budgets tracking...just to name a few of the projects' professional services tasks. We have generated and run the project Meetings, including minutes, review and updates of schedules, budgets and change orders. Our comfort zone is architecture, coordination, communicating our clients' directives, value engineering and project oversight.

We capture the essence of the project through constant consultation with the project team and relay the instructions to the team for implementation. Creating good communication and respect of the team members is always paramount during the project, so we have interpersonal skills that relate well with the Owner, Architect and Contractor office staffs.
