Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) is a superior delivery model because it aligns the interests of the owners, designers, and builders at the outset of a project. No more silos, no more hidden problems, no more posturing for claims, and no more disappointments at the end. The IPD contract and the Lean Construction operating system that is mandated by IPD bring early engagement and full commitment of all parties to deliver the highest value at the lowest cost. The side benefits are high levels of design innovation, safety, quality, and roughly 5X more likely to finish on time or ahead of schedule than traditional delivery.
