Integrated Project Delivery – is it possible?

 
October 16th, 2009 by Susan Smith

At the Bentley Be Inspired: Infrastructure Best Practices Symposium and Awards in Charlotte, NC this past week, an Executive Roundtable discussion included Bentley customers, employees and the press in what turned out to be a discussion of Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) and what that means to different stakeholders.

One participant said Integrated Project Delivery “doesn’t make it” outside the U.S. Another said that legality and risk make it “difficult” to do IPD. Someone offered that structural engineers are able to do IPD more easily.

The hope among some was that as BIM is better understood, then the BIM model will be relied upon for accuracy. But BIM really asks architects to be as rigid as engineers, and one participant said “architects aren’t usually that explicit.”

This topic was addressed in the AECWeekly article, The Road to AEC Project Execution Success, which drew from a study contracted by software company Newforma, and written by Bruce Jenkins, principal of Spar Point Research.

The study entitled “Mitigating Risk in AEC Project Execution: Perspectives from Principals, Counsel and Insurers,” took a fresh look at the industry from three stakeholder viewpoints.
