Traditional project delivery entices stakeholders to maximize their individual outcomes, regardless of the effect on the overall project. Because interests are not affiliated, if conflicts arise, individual self-interest tends to place the project at risk of failure. Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) aims to create alignment among all stakeholders regarding why and how a project will be accomplished. An IPD method integrates people, systems, and practices into a process that collaboratively harnesses the talents of all participants to optimize efficiency through all phases of design and construction. This paper reviews the challenges of the traditional project delivery methods and discusses the opportunities that an IPD approach offers that would foster team play and incentivize the right result. IPD advocates early involvement of key participants, reduced liability, joint project management, and sharing of risk and reward. A case study is presented which discusses the lessons learned that can support the use of IPD for project success. The design challenges in this case study involved designing a commercial building using Net-Zero performance criteria. The findings of successful implementation of IPD are also discussed in the paper that will be of particular interest to construction engineers, designers, estimators, project managers and researchers who are interested in using and promoting IPD methodology in the construction industry.
