Integrated Project Delivery

IPDElisa Brandts, President of PBK Architects, and Rick Boates, President of Unitech Construction Management recently teamed up to present on the the newest form of Construction Procurement, Integrated Project Delivery, to the Professional Services Management Association of Vancouver at a luncheon seminar June 27th at the Sutton Place Hotel.  The Integrated Project Delivery Method, or IPD for short, brings a collaborative alliance of professionals, systems, business structures and practices that harnesses the talents and insights of all participants to optimize project results, increase value to the owner, reduce waste, and maximize efficiency through all phases of design, fabrication, and construction.  To learn more about the IPD procurement method and how it compares to other construction procurement choices please download the presentation by clicking on the following link.
