Flexibility in Project Delivery Models
The selection of the appropriate method of delivery is dependent on a large number of issues such as timing, scope certainty, project complexity, project remoteness, local skill sets, available time to complete and political issues etc.
For example when the various service providers are segmented, the owner has maximum control, but this control can be costly and doesn't give each provider an incentive to optimize its contribution for the next service. When there is tight integration amongst providers, each step of the delivery is undertaken with future activities in mind, resulting in cost savings, but reducing the owner's level of influence during the delivery process of the project. Risk profiles also vary from method to method.
The conventional design–bid–build (DBB) is used for many private projects. However of late, projects are being developed under more integrated delivery methods.
Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) is a project delivery method in which the interests of the primary team members are aligned in such a way that the members can be integrated for optimal project performance resulting in a collaborative, value-based process delivering high-outcome results to all members of the delivery team.
CNF has the experience and the capability to undertake assignments at any phase or for a series of phases of a project and so thus has the flexibility to work with or for a client in any form of project delivery from DBB to IPD allowing clients to manage risk and retain the desired level of control.
