IPD: shared risk, shared reward.
Looks like it’s catching on. McCarthy Building Companies out of St. Louis, MO, have just announced a project at Children’s Hospital Colorado, which will be delivered with an IPD agreement. The constructs of IPD always motivate the team to higher efficiency. At Children’s Hospital Colorado, the team chose to forego the shop drawing and submittal process and prompt the structural engineer (S.A. Miro) to provide detailing services. Collaboration allows team members the opportunity to do work that they normally wouldn’t, simply because it’s good for the project.
Thus far, IPD projects have been most prevalent in the healthcare industry, like our Marlborough Hospital Cancer Pavilion project.
