A new piece from the Delaware Business Times celebrates the Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) model that fueled Bayhealth’s new Sussex Campus – a dynamic new facility that helps Bayhealth better serve the rapidly growing population in its surrounding region.
Working in partnership with construction management company Whiting Turner, we utilized IPD to reduce waste and redundancies in the design process while increasing value – delivering the project three months earlier than comparable healthcare projects. In addition to providing architecture services, our team provided engineering, interior design, cost estimating, healthcare consulting, lighting design, technology, commissioning and environmental graphics services on the project.
On the IPD Model
“The difference with IPD is that the architect, engineer, construction manager and owner are all agreeing on the same target value,” said Metzing. That means they can work together to find value rather than operate based on their own incentives. “(It inherently) incentives people to always do the right thing for the team.”
“We’ve figured out the better way to deliver a project is to have (these entities) working together,” adds Hoggard.
