Topic:Integrated Project Delivery by Dr. Jayasimha Krishnachar

Senior Vice President - Projects
Provident Housing Limited.

Synopsis :

Integrated project delivery (IPD) - Involves collaboration of all stake holders in a project such as Owners, Managers, Designers, Procurers, Contractors and Maintainers.

The aim of this alliance is to have formal non-confrontational relationships in the project group so that on the whole the system works on the principle of ‘Pain share and Gain share’. The process also helps to Increase value and reduce waste.

This system was conceived in the U S market where they realized that the project process was becoming very confrontational and litigations were becoming common. Increased wastage was also a worry.

Use of leading Technology such as BIM and other tools are actively advocated as these will help in reducing the rework and hence cut the wastage and save time.

Relevance to Indian Context:  Indian construction scene is also becoming complex with many players in a project and hence the atmosphere is becoming confrontational.

Measures to mitigate this situation shall also be discussed.

Closure:  If the audience feels that this needs to be taken forward, a small working group can be set up to study and adopt IPD for Indian context
