Owners' Perceived Barriers to Adoption of IPD in Canada

Owners' Perceived Barriers to Adoption of IPD in Canada

While IPD is emerging as a viable delivery model in the industry, with success stories from Canada and around the world, some Canadian owners are hesitant to give it a try. This study presents the research findings of a study investigating those owners’ perceived barriers to adoption of IPD as a delivery model on their construction projects. The reasons are complex but can largely be distilled down to a set of six perceived barriers, explored in detail in this report.

Quantifying Performance for the Integrated Project Delivery System as Compared to Established Delivery Systems

Quantifying Performance for the Integrated Project Delivery System as Compared to Established Delivery Systems

Because IPD is becoming increasingly popular, various organizations are expressing interest in its benefits to the architecture/engineering/construction (AEC) industry.This study fills that missing gap by evaluating the performance of IPD projects compared to projects delivered using the more traditional design-bid-build, design-build, and construction management at-risk systems, and showing statistically significant improvements for IPD.

IPD: Performance, Expectations, and Future Use

IPD: Performance, Expectations, and Future Use

Effective project delivery meets or exceeds owner’s expectations for schedule, cost and quality. There is an emerging body of research that shows more collaborative/integrated delivery is more likely to lead to successful outcomes and high-level team performance. Within that context, this survey takes a snapshot of current perceptions of effectiveness on projects using multiparty agreements, the most formal and contractually binding of the integrated delivery methods.
