Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) Family

Integrated project delivery (IPD) is a collaborative project delivery approach that utilizes the talents and insights of all project participants through all phases of design and construction. The AIA provides agreements for three levels of integrated project delivery. Transitional Forms are modeled after existing construction manager agreements and offer a comfortable first step into integrated project delivery. The Multi-Party Agreement is a single agreement that the parties can use to design and construct a project utilizing integrated project delivery. The Single Purpose Entity (SPE) creates a limited liability company for the purpose of planning, designing and constructing the project. The SPE allows for complete sharing of risk and reward in a fully integrated collaborative process. AIA documents for IPD can be used on large private sector commercial projects.

See the list of AIA Contract Documents by Family for information about the availability of IPD documents in AIA Contract Documents® software and paper (see local distributors). Users should exercise independent judgment and may require the advice of legal counsel on deciding which documents are appropriate for a particular project.
