“A great building must begin with the immeasurable, must go through measurable means when it is being designed, and in the end must be unmeasured” – Louis Kahn

At ibds, PC (Integrated Building Design Services), we take a unique and innovative approach to our building and design services, allowing the client to visualize their project in a 3D environment as their project develops.

    This is the imagination or idea phase of the project. ibds excels in this phase of design by offering new ideas which draw from a wide range of experience or helping the client to refine their own ideas. Critical to this idea phase is communicating these hard to define concepts in a way that is easy to visualize and understand. ibds is an expert in helping the client to visualize ideas in 3D while the design is being developed.

    Great ideas are important to the design process but are not usable if they can’t be built or are unsafe for the building occupant. ibds excels in the ability to create new ideas that are functional, buildable and safe.

    This is the ultimate goal of the design process. This is the implementation of ideas that are unique to each owner and project and realizing these ideas in the built environment. The end result is providing a space that speaks to the owner in a unique way that can’t be measured.

These three aspects of the design process is the driving force behind integrated building design services (ibds). Our goal is to integrate these vital steps into a cohesive design.
