Told from an owner’s perspective, this engaging narrative session will take an in-depth look at the application of IPD (Integrated Project Delivery) on St. Joseph High School and St. Gregory the Great Catholic School. As the first publicly funded IPD project in Alberta, these two projects were delivered under one contract with architects, contractors, consultants, trades and owner representatives contributing to the IPD team. Starting with a brief overview of IPD, this presentation will focus on Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools’ experience with this highly collaborative delivery model and highlight the ‘lessons learned’ on the project. From design through to construction, participants will gain a thorough understanding of the challenges and opportunities inherent to the IPD process and the application of integrated design and construction techniques. Ultimately, an IPD model allowed the team to deliver this project at a reduced cost while improving quality, schedule, and educational outcomes for students.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. What IPD is?
  2. How IPD works?
  3. How IPD can bring value to projects?
  4. Things to consider when selecting an IPD team.
