The Big Time

by
Managing any project successfully is all about Team Work combined with years of Accrued Expertise. It is an asset to have an educational background that compliments your field of expertise but "education" without "experience" is like an "arrow" without a "bow." You can never make a perfect shot with a temporary arrow unless you have a permanent bow called: "Life's Experience." Remember, you can never teach experience but you can always teach from experience.

Recently, many companies are adopting the IPD approach in lieu of the traditional Design-Build for the following reasons: 

  1. Has as proven to successfully integrate people, systems, business structures and different practices into a process that collaboratively binds the talents and insights of all parties to optimize project results, increase value to the owner, reduce waste and maximize efficiency through all phases of design and construction.
  2. Is the emerging approach to organize project teams in order to achieve lean construction at a time when the industry is searching for ways to eliminate waste, cut costs, improve productivity, and create positive outcomes. 
  3. Allow Owners and Development Managers to effectively balance the project options to meet their business enterprise goals.
  4. Allow Construction Managers to contribute their expertise in construction techniques early in the design process which will result in improved quality and financial performance.
  5. Allow Designers to benefit from the early contribution of the CM resulting in an optimized design.
