Integrated Project Delivery, or IPD, is the process by which each individual stakeholder in a construction project comes together to collaborate on every aspect of the project in order to ensure quality outcomes. Owners, architects, engineers, construction trades, and other affiliates take a team-based approach to plan each detail of a project at inception in order to ultimately save time and budget.
Traditionally, varying project participants focus exclusively on their part of construction, however, IPD focuses on the importance of all participants closely collaborating to maximize productivity and project value. By closely collaborating, project teams are able to make informed decisions prior to construction, maximizing productivity and ultimately eliminating waste in the design. Furthermore, relationship-building and collaboration allows the team to build trust and shared critical information between the design and construction teams further contributing to project productivity.
IPD utilizes practices in lean construction to solve issues in relation to productivity, waste, schedules, and quality prior to construction. Building information modeling is also heavily utilized throughout the process to further ease information collaboration.
