Lean/IPD brings together cross-discipline expertise and lean construction principles for a highly-collaborative approach to delivering projects that results in greater transparency, efficiency and certainty through all phases.
Traditional Delivery Methods vs Lean/IPD
Lean/IPD projects perform better than traditional projects across every measure of success. On average, they cost less, are completed faster, are of higher quality, and deliver a better overall experience for owners and the project trade partners. Everyone involved in a Lean IPD project—from the owner, the design partners, the builder, the specialty trade partners and their materials and equipment suppliers—work to align on a common vision, agreement on the target cost, target schedule and defining what constitutes success for the project, for the owner and for the individual companies involved.
Tenets of lean construction
Lean IPD methodology creates a reliable workflow that is built on delivering commitments across the multi disciplinary team that creates trust and a culture of “power with” where everyone contributes, and where we’re always learning and driving constant improvement as a team.
- Learn early
- Work on what is needed now
- Achieve reliable workflow
- Leverage the team’s intelligence
- Engage key partners early

Six essential practices of a Lean/IPD project
The integrated team builds capability and strong relationships from early involvement of all project partners, co-location, visual communication and a contract that shares risk and reward based on project outcomes over any individual performance.
