The IPD process is built on behavior and contractual relationships that are greatly enhanced by incorporating the technology-based process of BIM. BIM helps project teams use consistent, reliable information in a common collaborative environment, increasing understanding of design intent, improving efficiency, and enabling new ways of working that inspire more sustainable design and construction.
