Integrated Project Delivery

Getting the best value.

Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) is a new way of delivering projects that reduces waste, delivers value and fully engages owners, designers and construction teams early in the project. A single multi-party contract, often including multiple trades in addition to the contractor and consultant group, encourages all team members to do what is right for the project, rather than what is right for them. IPD is hard work but immensely successful when done right.

IPD is a highly collaborative process that captures the attention of the key team's leaders and owner's user groups. To be successful, you must engage professionals that know how to do IPD and are committed to making it work. Graham is that team.

The key parameters include:

  • Multi-party agreements that outline all parties' duties to the project and to each other. Profits and risks are shared and there may be bonuses for achieving the owner's objectives;
  • A leadership regime that emphasizes openness, trust, respect and collaborative decision making;
  • Access to information, usually web-based, with an emphasis on BIM to ensure all parties have the ability to provide input; and
  • IPD processes that set measurable objectives for improvement over traditional projects. There will be multi-day, multi-company workshops that will embrace innovation and set strict goals for the project.

With several successful IPD projects currently underway, Graham has the expertise, passion and knowledge to truly deliver great IPD projects.

The Moose Jaw Hospital is Canada's first IPD project. Graham was selected as the builder, and is part of the seven-member core project team.
