Breakout Session 14: Making it Happen - Moving procurement forward
Nigel Tai from Diamond Schmitt Architects along with Joseph Day from EllisDon Corporation present their paper IPD Integrated Project Delivery as a procurement model for Passive House Projects.
Passive House projects are a result of carefully engineered design (consultant input) executed with high-quality site control (constructor input). Collaboration between the two-halves of our industry is fundamental.
IPD, a new project procurement model in Canada, is an inclusive process where all disciplines work as one, creating faster delivery times, lower costs, and a more enjoyable process for the entire team, including the owner. It aligns with the necessary components to a successful PH project:
- Front end engineering design;
- Early trade input and constructability review;
- High-quality construction;
- Collaborative environment of learning and innovation;
- Deep understanding of project objectives across disciplines
