Welcome

The University of Idaho Integrated Design Lab in Boise [IDL] is dedicated to the development of high performance energy efficient buildings in the Intermountain West. This is approached through research, education and outreach efforts with students, owners, and professional design and construction teams to transform practice and keep pace with the milestones of the 2030 Challenge. Those who utilize the resources available through the IDL 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.
