Having successfully completed hundreds of design-build parking structure projects, IPD has extensive experience in this method of project delivery. Design-build delivery combines architecture/engineering and construction services under a single contract, thereby integrating the roles of designer and constructor. This method is especially well suited for the delivery of structured parking facilities. With both design and construction in the hands of a single entity (typically the contractor), there is a single point of responsibility for quality, cost and schedule. The owner is able to focus on scope and decision-making, rather than on coordination between designer and contractor. During the past decade, the design-build delivery method has become one of the most significant trends in the design and construction industry.
