Integrated Project Delivery / LEAN

Though relatively new to the industry, BBL has been a proponent of the principles that surround Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) for over a decade. The very core of our business model and practice is to merge design and constructability into an integrated process, allowing us to identify the best way to build a project and manage the Owner resources.

Our approach to IPD begins with building strong relationships in which a mutual level of respect and trust is established amongst key project stakeholders. Throughout the life-cycle of a project, BBL strives to maintain a level of transparency and open communication by working collaboratively with owners, architects, engineers a trade contractors. By leveraging the use of innovative tools and technology such as Building Information Modeling (BIM) and cloud-based applications, value is added to a project by enhancing communication and maximizing efficiency.

BBL’s IPD strategy:

  • Collaborative team approach
  • Open and transparent communication
  • Outline and understanding project goals
  • Early involvement of all project participants
  • Use of cutting edge technology
  • Lean construction practices
  • Design Assist
  • Cost & schedule control
  • Onsite/co-located project teams

Benefits of IPD:

  • Reduced design and construction costs
  • Schedule optimization
  • Improved quality of construction
  • Reduced risk for project stakeholders
  • Integrated Design
