You are still more likely today to hear about the mega-project’s use of Integrated Project Delivery than the smaller projects. Although the big projects usually command all the attention, small projects make up a majority of the project landscape across the country. This presentation will focus on a large healthcare system located in Chicago and its’ first two IPD projects utilizing an Integrated Form of Agreement with a focus on the unique challenges in implementing the ILPD tools from the big jobs to the $10M and less scale for a new ground-up building and an interior hospital renovation. The panel of presenters will include representatives from the Owner’s perspective, the general contractor and other consultants and subcontractors. The contracting method used on both projects was very similar and two different teams were used. The Owner’s Representative has worked for this client for numerous years on all capital project needs. This will allow for real world examples showing the progress being made by using the IPD tools. The panel will share their stories of success and failure in trying to leverage the knowledge of how lean tools on the big jobs can be right-sized for these first IPD implementations.
