IPD is a project delivery method that integrates people, systems, business structures and practices into a single process. The IPD process collaboratively harnesses the talents and insights of all participants – simultaneously.
Digital Engineering, also known as Building Information Modelling (BIM) is the catalyst for IPD – a forerunner – and a critical part of the overall IPD process. Digital Engineering detailing software is blended into IPD – releasing all the benefits and value of both BIM and IPD.
The result is reduced waste, reduced duplication of effort, significantly de-rated commercial risk and vastly optimized efficiencies through all phases of design, fabrication and construction.
Supply Chain Management and IPD
We already have a large focus on Project Management, Supply Chain Management, Quality Inspection and Schedule Expediting. Integrated Project Delivery is simply incorporating and releasing the value of Digital Engineering & the Virtual Construction methodology into what we already provide to our clients.
Early Engagement De-Rates Significant Risk
Early engagement of the IPD method with robust implementation and management is proven to add value and significantly de-rate the risks throughout the delivery of the project.
