An IPD project uses a multi-party contract with a collective management of risk. This approach aligns parties in a co-located space at an early stage in project development to define values and design to cost. This reduces layered transactional costs while also providing schedule and cost value to the owner. IPD projects are open-book, with Bird tracking and reporting to the owner to demonstrate cost and value.
IPD culture is empowered, collaborative, and communicative, making it an ideal platform for the deployment of Lean tools and techniques. Lean is about adding value for the customer by eliminating waste during the design and construction process. Bird’s expertise in Lean project management maximizes efficiency through all phases of design and construction of your project. All IPD projects use technology to complement and support this process with real-time digital design and documentation.
