Integrated Design Lab
The University of Idaho Integrated Design Lab (IDL) in Boise is dedicated to the development of high performance, energy-efficient buildings in the Intermountain West. Through research, education and outreach with students, owners and industry professionals, we transform practice to keep pace with the milestones of the 2030 Challenge — helping ensure that all of Boise’s new buildings and major developments are carbon neutral by 2030.
Those who use IDL’s resources will design and construct buildings that are more comfortable for people, require less energy to maintain and operate, and enhance the health and productivity of inhabitants.
IDL has developed a series of free tools to help in the design of sustainable, energy efficient buildings.
Lunch and Learn Lecture Series
IDL offers free one-hour presentations to your firm on a range of energy efficient design topics. We provide lunch!
The Building Simulation Users Group is an opportunity to learn more about architecture and engineering-focused building simulation. We offer activities and a regular lecture series.
