Graduate Certificate Integrated Project Delivery


Many stakeholders in the construction industry recognize the inefficiency of design-bid-build project delivery. Numerous and costly changes, contract disputes, and schedule delays render traditional general contracting a less attractive option than in the past. Integrated project delivery (IPD) methods, especially design-build, are popular precisely because they successfully address these problems.
