For many teams, it is an almost impossible challenge to simultaneously deliver high performance, cost efficient buildings while maintaining high customer satisfaction and profitability. It is not uncommon for high performance commercial buildings to cost 10% - 20% more to build than conventional buildings. Adam Cohen of Passiv Science has been designing and building Passive Commercial Buildings at costs comparable to typical new construction and is achieving Passive Building level results.
This class will discuss the basics of Integrated Project Delivery (IPD), Passive Building design principles, LEAN construction, work flows specific to IPD, BIM integration and in-depth instruction in the design ~ estimating integration needed for a successful project. Specific tools and methods will be taught that cover the design/cost evolution process from initial cost validation to design/cost advancement through real time cost management during construction.
This training gets students on the same page using the terminology, training and the same tools. They are then invited to become a member of the IPD Community, which is a no cost online open source networked learning platform to hone skills, create, use and simplify tools and systems and share best practices. The vision for the IPD community is an international networked community of practice.
