Integrated Design Lab - Bozeman
Offering integrated design services to maximize energy efficiency including daylight and electric lighting analysis, energy modeling, and lighting systems consultations.
For over 6 years, Integrated Design Lab - Bozeman (IDL - Bozeman) has provided daylighting and energy efficiency analysis to Montana's architects and engineers. Located on Montana State University's Bozeman campus, IDL - Bozeman is affiliated with the School of Architecture. Founded by architecture professor Tom Wood, the IDL - Bozeman is now run by Kevin Amende, P.E., and Jaya Mukhopadhyay, Ph.D, LEED AP. Students from the architecture program assist with the Lab's projects.
IDL - Bozeman is funded by BetterBricks, the commercial building initiative of the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA) and NorthWestern Energy in Montana. As part of a larger lab network, IDL - Bozeman works to raise awareness about the environmental impacts of energy consumption, through project analysis, consulting, and training workshops.
