About Project Delivery

The AIA Project Delivery Knowledge Community (PDKC) promotes the architect’s leadership role in all project delivery methods by assembling and distributing knowledge and best practices for a variety of project delivery methods, e.g. design-build (DB), integrated project deliveries (IPD), and public-private partnerships (P3). 

Web Seminar Series

The series explored basic and advanced topics in the development and management of design-build firms and projects. Topics varied from design-build for the public institutions; integrated project delivery, and to how architectural firms established their design-build services.View a complete listing of webinar recordings. View the webinar resources page for these and other archived webinars.
