‘… the completed set of design information on a project, including the work of all designing subcontractors (Performance Specified Work) that is substantially aligned. The design can be said to have been integrated when all of the subcontractor design is completed. Subcontractor design can be utilised on all forms of procurement and is typically referred to as CDP (Contractor Design Portion) or PSW (Performance Specified Work). Whilst the work of subcontractors is being integrated into the design, there are possibilities that the coordinated design may need to be amended. This needs to be carefully dealt with, particularly when several designing subcontractors are working concurrently’
The Loss Prevention Standard (LSP 2082 : Issue 1.0), published by BRE Global in 2017, defines integrated design as: "A holistic approach to the design of a facility that, through the collaboration of many disciplines, leads to better design outcomes."
