Integrated project delivery IPD is a construction project delivery method that seeks efficiency and involvement of all participants people, systems, business structures and practices through all phases of design, fabrication, and construction. The objectives of IPD are to increase productivity, reduce waste waste being described as resources spent on activities that does not add value to the end product , avoid time overruns, enhance final product quality, and reduce conflicts between owners, architects and contractors during construction. The construction industry has suffered from a productivity decline since the s   while all other non-farm industries have seen large boosts in productivity. Proponent of Integrated project delivery argue that problems in contemporary construction, such as buildings that are behind schedule and over budget, are due to adverse relations between the owner , general contractor , and architect. Using ideas developed by Toyota in their Toyota Production System and computer technology advances,  the new focus in IPD is the final value created for the owner. In essence, IPD sees all allocation of resources for any activity that does not add value to the end product the finished building as wasteful.
In the recent years, owners and construction management companies have shown an increasingly more interest in adopting approaches that result in enhanced quality and less risks, conflicts, and wastes on their projects despite potentially higher initial cost. Implementing advanced technology trends and incorporating more integrated methods of delivering projects have proven to be highly value-adding and forward-thinking approaches. The objective of this research was to evaluate the effectiveness of and the synergy between three of such trending concepts in the construction industry, namely, integrated project delivery IPD , lean principles, and building information modeling BIM in terms of cost and schedule performance measures. Data analysis was conducted on 72 vertical projects through interviews and study of the published articles, reports, and case studies. Qualitative analysis was performed through grounded theory while quantitative analysis was implemented using univariate and multivariate analysis of variance tests on schedule performance and cost performance.
