Integrated Project Delivery

Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) is a collaboration of all parties, systems and practices to optimize and maximize project success. Defined by the American Institute of Architects, IPD is typically applied to design and construction projects.

NOTE: True IPD employs various constructs some of which MPA may be precluded from using by Commonwealth law (such as the use of multi-party contracts, and profit-sharing). MPA’s project delivery approach may leverage some aspects of IPD that are allowed by law (such as co-location and BIM).[1]
