What's The Future Of Project Delivery In The Design Industry?

Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) is a new approach to the design and construction of buildings that is based on a cooperative working relationship, shared risk and reward, and open exchange of data that is intended to result in lower cost, shorter design and construction schedules, lower overall risk, increased prefabrication, and overall improvement in efficiency and productivity. The convergence of new technology, process improvement, and cultural change are helping to facilitate an environment where owners, architects, engineers, and contractors can collaborate more effectively earlier in the design and construction process to achieve these goals. By challenging traditional methods of delivery, IPD is paving the way for better, faster, and less costly building projects; streamlined information and material supply chains, and more efficient processes throughout the building design and construction industry.

The 2011 IPD eConference will take place on Tuesday, Dec. 13, 2011 11:00 AM - 3:30 PM ET.

Who Should Attend:
All professionals involved in project delivery and project design, such as architects, engineers, and designers, are invited to attend.

Software solution providers, insurance professionals, risk mitigation specialists, and other legal professionals may participate as event sponsors. Please inquire for details.

Building Consensus with Clients & Stakeholders for Roundabouts
Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013, 2 PM ET / 1 PM CT / 11 AM PT
Let’s face it: Roundabouts have poor public perception in the United States, even though a properly designed modern roundabout may be the perfect solution to a new or redesigned intersection.  This webinar will highlight an efficacious project in Johnston, Iowa, that successfully introduced four modern roundabouts into a single corridor despite initial denial or reluctance from the owner and key stakeholders.  Using Bentley software such as MicroStation, GEOPAK, and LEAP, Foth Infrastructure & Environment, LLC used innovative techniques to inform and educate the public and key stakeholders of the benefits and the logistics of how roundabouts would prevail as the preferred solution for the NW 62nd Avenue Improvements project.
