Delivering your next brownfield project 15% faster using Integrated Project Delivery  

Integrated project delivery (IPD) is a collaborative approach to construction project management that involves all members of the project team – including the owner, architect, contractor, and subcontractors – working together from the project’s inception to its completion. 

This method of project delivery has been shown to increase efficiency, reduce waste, and improve overall project outcomes. Here are some steps you can take to deliver your next brownfield project 15% faster using IPD.

Develop a clear project vision and set of objectives

Before starting the project, take the time to develop a clear vision and set of objectives for the project. This will help ensure that everyone on the project team is working towards the same goal, and will make it easier to make decisions throughout the project.

Create a collaborative project team

In an IPD project, all members of the project team – including the owner, architect, contractor, and subcontractors – work together as a single team. This means that everyone is involved in decision-making and problem-solving from the beginning of the project.

Use advanced project management tools and techniques

IPD projects typically make use of advanced project management tools and techniques, such as building information modeling (BIM) and lean construction principles, to increase efficiency and reduce waste. These tools and techniques can help project teams identify and eliminate bottlenecks and other inefficiencies, and can provide real-time visibility into project progress.

Emphasize open communication and transparency

In an IPD project, open communication and transparency are essential. This means that all members of the project team should be encouraged to share their ideas and concerns, and that project information should be shared openly and transparently with all team members.

Set up a single point of contact for the project

In an IPD project, a single point of contact is responsible for coordinating all aspects of the project. This person is responsible for ensuring that all team members are working together effectively, and for resolving any issues that arise.

By following these steps, you can deliver your next brownfield project 15% faster using IPD. This method of project delivery can help increase efficiency, reduce waste, and improve overall project outcomes.
