An Integrated Design Process Enhances New Construction

MIT has established environmental goals for all new capital projects on campus. These include: an integrated design process at the outset of the planning process to incorporate the desires of architects, engineers and MIT to ensure an efficient building; following a LEED process to achieve a LEED Silver Certification level at least; and the commissioning of a building after occupancy to make certain that the building’s systems are operating effectively and as designed.
