Exploring integrated project delivery in Toronto
The Institute for BIM in Canada (IBC), with its constituent organizations, is holding a conference November 8-9 in Toronto examining the topic of integrated project delivery, or IPD, and how this new project delivery method can benefit the construction industry.
The conference, being held at the Allstream Centre at Exhibition Place, is themed: Implementing IPD: A ‘Win-Win’ Solution in Construction.
“We have heard a lot about the emergence of IPD, as well as some Canadian examples of how it is being utilized,” said Dave Pelletier, chair of the Institute for BIM in Canada.
“This project delivery method has shown its ability to maximize efficiencies for all parties, the added value of using BIM, and bring a new level of collaboration to construction projects.”
Sponsored by Autodesk, the conference will explore a range of topics and subject areas related to integrated project delivery. This includes case studies of successful IPD projects, as well as perspectives from owners, contractors, and consultants.
The program will also examine the interrelationship between Lean construction and IPD, as well as how BIM and IPD can bring about more efficiency when paired.
The two-day conference will feature a full-day of sessions on Nov. 8, as well as a networking session that evening.
On Nov. 9, delegates will have a half-day of sessions, including a look at IPD case studies from the Canadian construction marketplace.
“This conference is a great opportunity for anybody interested in utilizing this new delivery method, or simply learning more about it,” Pelletier said.
“It will provide an excellent background about what IPD is all about, but also offer practical solutions for anyone seeking to utilize IPD. We look forward to exploring the topic with all stakeholders when we kick off the conference in November.”
Registration is open for the conference. The preliminary program is available for download at www.cca-acc.com
Member pricing is available to members of IBC and its constituent organizations which include the Canadian Construction Association, Association of Consulting Engineering Companies-Canada, Construction Specifications Canada, Defence Construction Canada and Architecture Canada.
