These teams are brought together at the start of a project to ensure that all stages of the project are ‘integrated’. The IPD structure and concept was formulated in response to the decreasing levels of productivity and profitability in the construction sector. With the aim of an improved project outcome, adopting IPD approach allows managing risk allocation whilst focusing on the requirements of the end client.
By adopting the principles of IPD within the BIM framework, customers can reduce wastage whilst optimising efficiency during the design, manufacture, installation and construction stages of the project.
At Prompt, we provide a range of services to allow our customers to adopt the IPD principle and approach. We provide the technology infrastructure (including a range of online collaboration tools), a technical delivery solution (using Revit BIM modelling software) and a project management methodology that is required to generate and control all design output that is generated from the IPD process.
Our involvement on IPD projects revolves around high-quality management and delivery of design data, including parametric 3D BIM models, bills of quantities, construction drawings and record drawings.
Our aim is to ensure that all parties involved in the project (beyond the initial architect, client and main contractor) are bought into an overall standard for the production and use of design and construction data. By ensuring involvement of all stakeholders (including fabricators and specialist contractors) throughout the design process, we enable customers to benefit from adoption of IPD even when they are not yet fully equipped to do so with their existing resources.
Our engagement model for IPD projects varies and is dependent on the type of project and also on its scope. Our IPD support services range from initial consultation to complete management and execution of a range of IPD support services
