Only one industry (outside of farming) has experienced a net decline in labor productivity since 1964 – construction. To reverse this trend, there’s a new method – called integrated project delivery (IPD) – that’s getting results through collaboration, communication and good timing.


In this on-demand webinar from Construction Dive and Nureva, Layne Thompson walks you through how to use IPD and charrettes to increase labor production without augmenting your workforce.

There’s a lot of information packed into just 20 minutes. Here are just a few nuggets:

IPD has an impact

Layne shared the story of a golf cabin development in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, that came in ahead of schedule and $1 million under budget. The custom project, which involved reclaimed timber, was challenging. But the IPD process got the design build team working directly with the timber framing contractor – hear Layne explain the difference this made.

Design charrettes work

The time it takes to get people together in design charrettes can have huge payoffs as a project progresses. Getting everyone together to resolve problems and map solutions gives all the key team members a vision of what they'll be building. But as Layne explains, charrettes only work when the right people can contribute ideas at the right time – that's where technology can help.

Humans are inherently good

You'll have to stick around to the end of the webinar to see what Layne has to say about this!
