10 Ways to Reduce Construction Risk with Collaboration
Change orders, lack of timely and accurate information, poor leadership, and a dysfunctional team are the reasons the majority of construction projects end up being over budget, late, and dissatisfaction among all participants.
All of these are address by collaborative construction delivery methods. No, we are not talking about BIM. This is the proven process of applying integrated project delivery, IPD, job order contarcting, JOC, or similar construction delivery methods throughout the project life-cycle and well as for on-gong facilities management.
Risk is reduced by sharing information will a project participant from concept through completion. While the various collaborative construction delivery methods have their own structures, they share the concepts of a written Operations Manual / Execution Plan as well as the following…
- Early and ongoing communication of all project participants
- Mutual respect and trust
- Shared risk/reward

Collaborative construction delivery is a great improvement
How many of your construction projects are on-time and on-budget? If you are like almost most real property owners, the answer is very few. On average, 2.5% of projects are completed on-time and on-budget.
The numerous renovation, repair, maintenance, and minor new construction projects encountered by real property owners are critical to life-safety, security, and the overall mission of an organization.
Isn’t it time to improve from 2.5% to 87%-91% of your construction project on-time and on-budget? It’s possible with JOB ORDER CONTRACTING.

“LEAN is the path to success”
The single most important thing you can do to improve construction productivity, quality, and satisfaction is to focus upon collaborative construction delivery methods.
It is the construction delivery method that defines relationships, responsibilities, levels of risk, deliverables, timelines, techniques, reporting requirements, and ultimately project success.
Great teams and long term relationships don’t just happen, they are built. They are formed upon a foundation of mutual trust, transparency, communication, collaboration, and shared risk/reward.
The path toward achievement of best outcomes in terms of quality, productivity, and satisfaction is paved with LEAN best management practices. The Toyota Production System (TPS) is perhaps the best documented LEAN process. It has now moved into virtually every industry sector.
In construction, LEAN takes the form of Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) for major new construction, and Job Order Contracting (JOC) for renovation, repair, and minor new construction.
If, as an real property Owner, a Contractor, Sub…
