Our lab provides a wide range of services to Montana's architects and other professionals in the building industry.


Integrated Design Process Assistance

As the building industry begins to move towards an integrated design process, IDL - Bozeman is prepared to offer assistance to firms seeking to transition from traditional design to a new type of design process.  We can help you with learning about the integrated design process, preparing for design charettes, and serve as energy efficiency consultants throughout the design process.


Modeling and Analysis

Our lab provides free modeling and analysis for commercial projects throughout the state of Montana.  We use a mixture of digital and physical modeling to analyze spaces in proposed building designs or current buildings considering retrofits in the following areas:

  • Daylighting
  • Electric lighting
  • Energy efficiency

For every project we provide a report that displays our findings and recommendations.


Training and Workshops

In addition to modeling and analysis work, our lab hosts several training seminars and workshops throughout the year, including two annual workshops from Seattle's Lighting Design Lab team.  We also research and put together our own training sessions on such things as lighting design, daylighting, eQUEST, the integrated design process, and Ecotect.  Whether its an afternoon workshop or a lunch seminar, IDL - Bozeman can help you stay informed about the latest resources in energy efficient design.  Contact us today to set up a training or workshop on the subject of your choice.


Consulting Services

Our lab provides consulting services to Montana architects working on commercial projects.  Depending on the situation, we can also help set up additional consulting services with specialists to assist on large commercial projects.  Contact us for more information.
