2008 AIA Integrated Project Delivery Agreements

Podcast: 2008/5/2 - 20:23

Presenters: Forrest Lott, AIA & Robert Middlebrooks, AIA

Moderator: Markku Allison, AIA






Robert E. Middlebrooks, AIA, is as an industry programs manager with Autodesk’s AEC Solutions, specializing in building information modeling (BIM), integrated practice delivery (IPD) adoption, and industry relations. An architect with more than 25 years of design experience, he was previously a principal with Clark Nexsen, a Virginia-based, 360-person architecture and engineering firm, where he led design projects worldwide, including collaborative design-build and developer-led integrated projects. Middlebrooks also served as the principal for all of the firm’s digital design efforts and oversaw the implementation of full-discipline BIM within the firm.

Having served on the AIA National Board of Directors, he has been involved in various IPD task groups and currently serves, on the AIA Documents Committee, in the task group that developed the electronic protocol documents published in 2007 and the AIA 2008 IPD agreements.

Forrest Lott, AIA, LEED AP, is principal of Lott + Barber Architects, a 14-person firm in Savannah, Ga., that provides design services for projects including state university and college buildings, local hospitals and medical offices, and commercial clients. The firm also provides new-community planning, land-use evaluations, and master plans for public and private owners.

Lott has served as president of both the South Georgia AIA and AIA Georgia and, as a member of the National AIA Documents Committee, recently served as chair of the education task group. He currently serves on the AIA task group drafting integrated project delivery documents and is a coauthor of the recently released AIA publication, Integrated Project Delivery: A Guide.

Lott has presented widely on building information modeling and on facility issues and has served on several state-level bodies to advise on university facilities issues as well as budgetary oversight. In his local community, Lott has served on the Historic Savannah Foundation Board and was past chair of the Savannah Historic Board of Review.

In May 2008, the AIA released the Institute’s first agreements for integrated project delivery. Implementing principles and concepts laid out in “Integrated Project Delivery: A Guide,” the AIA provides agreements for two levels of integrated project delivery. In this podcast, members of the AIA Documents Committee discuss the new agreements, their features, and their potential for application.
