About this Event

Presentation Summary

An educational presentation on Integrated Project Delivery (IPD), a delivery model that integrates people, systems, business structures and practices into a process that collaboratively harnesses the talents and insights of all participants. The goal is to optimize project results, increase value to the owner, reduce waste, and maximize efficiency through all phases of design, fabrication, and construction.

The approach aims to put the right people in the room at the right time. The early engagement of trade partners, designers, owners and contractor teams provides the opportunity for a much deeper level of collaboration. The teams are also aligned through risk and reward sharing. If the project is delivered ahead of schedule and/or under budget, everyone stands to profit from requisite savings (the same is true for the reverse). The process naturally fosters efficiency.
