Smart growth and smaller dwelling units may address issues of sustainability far better than relying on technology.

FREE Webinar: Achieving Collaborative ‘IPD-ish’ Delivery with basic D-B, P3 or CM contracts

Sponsored by Construction Contract Administration
Wednesday, June 10, 2015, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM ET

This webinar examines the causes and effects of adversarial conflicts built into traditional construction contracts. It details specific ways for all parties to achieve benefits of early, actual-team collaboration via an 'IPD-ish' approach to design and construction. These techniques can be applied to any size project using current project delivery agreements such as CM or Design-Build. ‘IPD-ish’ delivery utilizes QBS and a fee-based GMP (no lump-sum price and no mark-ups) in open-book contracts to provide financial transparency and joint Owner-Architect-Contractor professional management—not just shifting—of project risks and uncertainties.

Discussions will focus on the creation of principles for action, awareness raising, pre- and post-disaster professional training programs, and New York’s ongoing responses to Superstorm Sandy.
