KARPEDIUM INTEGRATED PROJECT DELIVERY
Karpedium's Integrated Project Delivery (KIPD) is a project delivery approach that integrates people, systems, business structures and practices into a process that collaboratively harnesses the talents and insights of all participants to optimize project results, increase value to the owner, reduce waste, and maximize efficiency through all phases of design, fabrication, and construction.
KIPD principles can be applied to a variety of contractual arrangements and KIPD teams can include members well beyond the basic triad of owner, architect, and contractor. In all cases, integrated projects are uniquely distinguished by highly effective collaboration among the owner, the prime designer, and the prime constructor, commencing at early design and continuing through to project handover.
Traditional delivery and contracting approaches suffer from :
Fragmentation of design, procurement and construction with each entity functioning in a silo with absolute no incentives to collaborate, resulting in excessive finger pointing at overlaps or handovers.
MISALIGNED INCENTIVES - Participant success and project success are not related.
Risk Management is personal and functional, not holistic resulting in fewer savings to Owner.
Process is linear and improvisation is not rewarded.
Piecemeal accountability, with lowest price tendering creating a liability culture and risk dumping.
Control and performance measurement mechanisms are reactive and do not resolve quality, cost, time and change management issues in real time.
KIPD strategically realigns participant roles, underlying motivations, and sequences of activities on a project to utilize each participant's best talents and abilities at the most beneficial moment. Success is project-centric under an integrated delivery approach and relies on collaboration. The focus is on collectively achieving shared goals rather than meeting individual expectations. Success is measured by the degree to which common goals are achieved.
KIPD is a step towards creating a behavioral sea change in the industry by breaking down the silos of responsibility, requiring close cooperation among all major participants, and aligning participant success to project success.
