A Look at Integrated Project Delivery From the Inside Out
1 Aug 2022
Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) is a project delivery strategy that focuses on transparency and collaboration, forming a cohesive team, and implementing methods to enhance efficiency and generate desired project outcomes. This isn’t just about a new contract relationship between design and construct — the owner is a key stakeholder.
The culture of collaboration in IPD makes the most of all the project participants’ experience and insights and optimizes effective communication to mitigate risk and reduce changes late in the game. This approach saves time and money, reduces waste, and incentivizes participation through shared goals that unite the team.
