We are the pioneer in the application of EPCMV - a holistic, single-source, fully integrated project delivery method that incorporates engineering, procurement, construction management, and validation services for technically complex facilities.
EPCMV is a delivery model that focuses on providing value through collaboration and addresses the entire project life cycle. When applied to technically complex projects, EPCMV reduces time from decision to delivery, and provides unmatched efficiencies through each of the project phases.
We focus our efforts on design quality and effectively controlling costs and schedule. Our team of technical builders apply lean project delivery strategies, adding value and minimizing risk, to reduce the duration from decision to delivery and streamlining efficiencies from preconstruction to design to construction through commissioning and qualification.
Clients who use our EPCMV and program management services benefit from our expertise with a broad range of lean methodologies – target costing, just-in-time scheduling, and emerging technologies, such as building information modeling (BIM) and virtual reality.
IPS has taken a lead role in developing and implementing our Lean project delivery process, further driving our vision and resulting in real value for our clients. Our experts analyze and challenge every step of the project delivery cycle and apply our unique ideas and solutions to eliminate wasteful and redundant processes. Our lean project delivery process is aimed at four distinct areas:
- Shorten lead time
- Reduce cost
- Reduce waste and redundancy
- Improve/gain value, continuity, and sustainability
We have been able to reduce project construction costs, as well as project soft costs, and project timelines by focusing on these four areas. Throughout unique processes, we have reshuffled the traditional project delivery sequence generally designed for “risk allocation” and “pass the responsibility” sequence.
It is essential to the successful execution of all projects that communication is a top priority throughout the project life cycle. We utilize numerous tools to promote, capture, and respond to all vital project communications and team meetings. It is a key role of our project executives and project managers to focus on and support team communication.
