Building a World-Class Hospital Complex with Care, Compassion and Collaboration
High-performing integrated team “flexes for change” without making sacrifices to cost, schedule, quality for on-time opening day
Series of white papers for IGLC focus on lean, integrated project delivery (IPD) and beyond
How can DPR and the construction industry as a whole deliver greater value to customers by employing lean concepts, IPD and the like? What insights can we uncover when we dig deeper into the impact to jobsite productivity using approaches like alternative work schedules or improving how BIM models identify constructability issues? What cultural, financial, legal and technological barriers may be hindering the use of IPD outside the U.S.—and what are some possible solutions?
Those are just a few questions that DPR contributors delve into in a series of white papers published for The International Group for Lean Construction’s (IGLC) 2015 conference. The IGLC is a network of professionals and researchers in architecture, engineering and construction (AEC), who embrace the concept that the practice, education and research of AEC must be radically renewed in order to respond to the challenges ahead.
The various white paper studies and analyses shared an overarching goal: enhancing the industry knowledge base, while continuously working to find ways to improve value to owners and increase their return on their investment.
DPR participated in a total of five white papers for IGLC’s annual conference, the most white paper submissions published of any private company at this year’s conference.
Following are brief synopses of the knowledge shared through the various white papers submitted for this conference:
