Selecting the right construction contract model for a particular project can be the difference between harmony and discord among project participants, and the difference between the financial success and failure of the project. In recent years, the construction industry has witnessed the introduction of alternative delivery models: the Integrated Project Delivery Model (IPD) and Progressive delivery models. These project delivery models adapt to the realities of a changing marketplace by bringing all parties to the table early on to collaboratively manage their respective risks. In this session, topics of discussion will include:

  • Understanding the features of the IPD and Progressive models
  • Contrasting the collaborative models with the traditional, non-collaborative models
  • Analyzing which projects are right for a collaborative delivery model
