Integrated Project Delivery terms and aggreements:

Integrated Project Delivery helps to provide incentive and give all of the team members a financial stake in meeting project goals.

With Integrated Project Delivery, the team members can share the project saving and the cost overruns throughout the team.  The Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) lists three main ways to share:

  •      Pain/Gain Sharing
  •      Profit pooling
  •      Contingency sharing

The IPD  process wants to align the project team's goals with the owner's goals.  Involving the project team at the very early stages of a project allows them to understand those goals and affect changes before it becomes expensive to make those changes.

Even though IPD can change the way projects are delivered, it will not alter the requirements of professional or business licensing. Collaboration does not inherently blend the disciplines on a project. Keep in mind that all registration and compliance requirements remain. In fact, if a new entity is formed for IPD, there may be requirements for both design and constructions licenses. It will depend on the jurisdiction in authority over the project.

In the news I found that Autodesk's COBie toolkit for Revit 2014 and 2015 aced the building SMART alliance COBie for Design challenge.  Autodesk announced 100% positive marks and produces a COBie deliverable that needed no additional editing.  I just downloaded Autodesk Building Design Suite 2015 and installed it.  I hope to try this out in the next few weeks.

If you have had a good OR bad experience with Integrated Project Delivery and would like to share your thoughts, leave a comment on the website.  If you would like to be a bit more discreet you can contact me directly and I can pass along the pertinent parts of your experience for you.
