The Right Angle Journal - Winter 2017 - 20

with high quality interior environmental conditions. Good operational practices support effective energy management, building maintenance and durability. Good design
is the early investment that facilitates good construction quality, ease of operations,
and eventually, sustainability. But for all of the skill manifested by the architect and
the constructor, the keys to sustainability lie with the owner.
The engagement of the owner with the design process facilitates good design and
is the beginning of the process. This engagement isn't just a function of providing the
project budget. It starts with the program requirements and continues with time spent
over the design process guiding the design team as opportunities arise. Opportunities
inevitably arise because in many cases, the owner's program requirements are only
a bare sketch requiring development.
The chain of connection - from owner, to design professional, to constructor, to
maintenance staff - is one of the foundational ideas behind integrative design processes. That will be the topic of a future installment.
STEPHEN POPE is a special consultant to The Right Angle.
