Topic: Integrated Project Delivery Model
Join us for a hands on training session to better understand how Integrated Project Delivery is used in the Construction industry.
Market forces within the construction industry are demanding more collaborative environments. Construction Management at Risk, Design – Build, and more recently Lean Construction and Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) now account for the majority of all construction projects. In particular, IPD by its very definition requires a significant level of collaboration to succeed.
IPD is a project delivery approach that integrates people, systems, business structures and practices into a process that collaboratively harnesses the talents and insights of all participants to optimize project results, increase value to the owner, reduce waste and maximize efficiency through all phases of design, fabrication and construction. IPD principles can be applied to a variety of contractual arrangements and IPD teams can include members well beyond the basic triad of owner, architect, and contractors. In all cases, integrated projects are uniquely distinguished by highly effective collaboration among the owner, the prime designer, the prime contractor and the subcontractors, commencing at early design and continuing through to project handover.
