Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) has become a larger part of today’s construction market even in just the last 10 years. Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) is a project delivery approach that integrates people, systems, business structures and practices into a process that collaboratively harnesses the talents and insights of all participants to optimize project results.
The current construction market requires general contractors (and their subcontractors) to deliver fast-paced and cost-efficient products at record volumes. Symmetry Builders Inc. is continually educating itself on the evolution and developments, as well as the pros and cons, of the off-site/modular construction sector.
The decision of how to put a developer’s or client’s vision into reality is as old as construction itself. As with most things in life, this decision always depends on how we can achieve what we want as quickly and cost-efficiently as possible. To complicate this issue, our industry has developed and marketed terms such as design-build and design-bid-build to quantify a variety of approaches. Both approaches or delivery methods have their pros and cons – mostly depending on the complexity, size and risk tolerances of any given project.
