The AIA Project Delivery Knowledge Community (PD) 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).
This webinar was sponsored by the Project Delivery Knowledge Community on AIA KnowledgeNet. Recognizing a need for change to address demands for more efficiency, project complexities and sustainable results, the AEC industry is slowly transitioning to more integrated project delivery methods, fostering more collaboration. Concurrently, some firms are leveraging the benefits of BIM’s emerging technology to not only work smarter, but to ultimately facilitate this change in the way projects are delivered. The slow progression of this transition is often linked to those practitioners that are resisting the required cultural shift in the way designers practice. Risk acceptance, traditionally the architect’s biggest nightmare, may be the key reason for this ambivalence, yet at the same time, prevents more potential reward. Presenters of this course will review the principles of IPD and collaboration, and discuss why they may intimidate design professionals. Additionally, new approaches that integrate present at-risk contracts to a more collaborative shared risk/reward approach will also be addressed. To that end, the presenters will demonstrate through a current project case study how architects have an opportunity to participate in this collaborative project orchestration, potentially differentiating themselves in today’s competitive project climate.
