Integrated Project Delivery
Weitz has always encouraged open and honest communication and a free exchange of ideas. From top management to hourly field personnel, we believe that valuable input comes from all levels within a project team. Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) offers our clients a process of collaboration among all team members, from the contractor, owner, and designers, to subcontractors, suppliers, and field personnel.
Let the Experts Be the Experts
IPD lets the experts shine. By recognizing that each team member brings to the table distinct capabilities and expertise, Weitz creates an atmosphere that builds trust and respect with mutually agreed upon project goals.
Team members work together during the design and construction planning process collaborating on schematics, design development, and construction documents. This process offers owners the opportunity for informed decision-making regarding the budget and schedule every step of the way – before the design is completed and before construction has commenced. IPD Benefits Include:
- Total Team Collaboration
- Cost Savings
- Time Savings
- Reduced Risk
- Better Quality
Total Team Collaboration and Cost Savings – The combined knowledge and expertise of the entire team working together more effectively generates options and solutions, reducing the project schedule and giving our clients the best value for their investment.
Time Savings – Virtual Design & Construction (which utilizes BIM as a primary tool) – The use of VDC can help identify areas of the project that may provide the most challenges, giving team members the opportunity to create solutions before construction starts.
Reduced Risk – The entire project team completes the design and construction planning process together, eliminating unexpected change orders during construction.
