This guide provides an overview of the Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) method from the perspective of sheet metal, HVAC, and mechanical contractors and can serve as a guide for those interested in expanding their market share into healthcare and other IPD market sectors.
Part I – Overview of IPD
As a continuation of the 2018 SMACNA publication Construction Contracts – Alternative Delivery Methods, Part I of this guide is intended to provide more in-depth information on the IPD process, including factors to consider before joining an IPD team, the sheet metal, HVAC, and mechanical contractor’s role during design and preconstruction, and factors for successful construction and close-out.
Part II – Interviewing Findings
The information in Part II of this guide is based on in-depth interviews and ‘lessons learned’ from six SMACNA-member contractors who have been trade partners on IPD projects.
