Design-Build v IPD

Since we start the Autodesk Waltham project, we have incorporated the principles and practices of IPD into many of our presentations. Today, we spoke with the principles at an architectural firm in Boston and some interesting questions came up regarding design-build and IPD.

The basic question was...why IPD instead of design-build?

John's answer was in-tune with the principles of IPD and of course, a beautiful turn of phrase:
With IPD, the owner gets the relational benefits of a design-build contract with the richness of diversity found in a traditional team.
