Lean and Integrated Project Delivery

Lean Integrated Project Delivery combines lean management principles with a collaborative, aligned team and
contract structure to improve the outcomes of construction projects.

When Lean Integrated Project Delivery fails, it is usually because of incorrect assumptions, poor planning, and the owner
not recognizing their own crucial role in leading the project.

Why is Lean Design and Construction
Important and What Does it Look Like
when Implemented.

Based on research from manufacturing and companies like Toyota, Lean focuses on Continuous Improvement and a Respect for People while looking to drive waste out of the value delivery system.

What is Integrated Project Delivery

Integrated Project Delivery is a delivery model for complex construction projects focused on forming a single team of designers, builders, and owners
through aligned incentives, culture and contract structure.

Builders

Builders include the general contractor and key trade partners who have a significant impact on the outcome of the project.

Designers

Designers include the primary architect and key systems such as structural, mechanical, electrical and plumbing.

Owner

The owner is the entity who is sponsoring the project and ultimately responsible for

operating the completed project.  Involvement and leadership of the owner is

key to the success of IPD.
