Ideal Audience: ​Licensed or unlicensed and specialists engaged in the construction contract administration phase; geared towards small or large firms and to architects involved in risk management, project management, or staffing and training.

Education Level:

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.
