Lean Construction & Integrated Project Delivery
Lean is a set of tools and principles used to enhance project delivery (i.e. maximize efficiency) that establishes collaborative attitudes and behaviours among all stakeholders. Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) is simply a contractual model that uses Lean.
Construction Management is broader and more cost-effective than Bid-Build. By getting Graham involved earlier in the project life-cycle, we can work with your design team on key decisions that improve the project. This creates opportunities to optimize the three main parameters governing any project: price, quality and schedule.
General Contracting, or Bid-Build, has traditionally been the most common project delivery method. Clients self-plan and oversee design of the project, tender for construction, then select the winning bidder.
Design-Build provides clients and owners with powerful benefits. Because it combines several phases of the project life-cycle, this delivery method assures certainty on all three key project parameters: cost, quality and time. We assume responsibility for design and take on all pricing and timing risks.
The Public-Private Partnership (P3) delivery method maximizes certainty and minimizes risks for the client throughout the project’s life-cycle. Costs, quality and scheduling can be guaranteed, beginning at the planning stage and extending throughout the operating life.
Engineering / Procurement / Construction
When clients with complex industrial projects want a single source for Engineering, Procurement and Construction, they select the EPC method of delivery.
Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Virtual Design Construction (VDC) models are collaborative environments where teams coordinate the design, promote informed estimates and schedules, detect potential interferences, track progress, perform material analysis, as well as turnover and commissioning.
