Integrated Project Delivery

Unique delivery method rooted in collaboration that aligns interests, objectives, and practices of Owner, Design Team, and Construction Manager through a team-based approach.

Integrated project delivery (IPD) is an innovative way to excel construction planning by reducing waste, cutting costs, and improving productivity.  IPD’s main goal is to create a team effort integrating owner, architects, engineers, construction managers, and subcontractors. Unlike other project delivery systems, IPD creates a unique bond from day one of the planning stages, binding all major project stakeholders together.

IPD encourages early contribution of knowledge and experience and requires proactive involvement of the key participants. Responsibility is placed on the most able person or party with decisions being made on a “best for project” basis.
