Abstract:Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) is a collaborative project delivery process that reduces waste and maximizes value creation by harnessing the expertise and experience of all relevant stakeholders throughout the design and construction process of a given project. The owner, designer, builder, and user integrate people, systems, business structures and practices into a project team to optimize collective value creation while maintaining balance of individual benefits. The research utilizes a Delphi survey method to (1) select and assess the relative importance of critical success factors for value-creation, and (2) use the selected factors as a basis for evaluating the effectiveness of three project delivery methods: Design-Bid-Build, Design-Build, and Integrated Project Delivery. Key concepts for the theoretical framework of the research include: a macro-viewpoint understanding of project delivery must be adopted to define and measure value-creation; a significant relationship exists between project goals and value-creation; perceptions of relative importance and success differ within the stakeholder groups, and Integrated Project Delivery logically provides a normative model to optimize the collaborative processes to account for the different stakeholder perceptions and provide maximum benefit of all. The research and Delphi panel of experts is centered on the U.S. Army's Integrated Design-Bid-Build (IDBB) pilot-projects which for the first time test Integrated Project Delivery on a large scale within Military Construction (MILCON) program.
