Understanding the Benefits of BIM/Lean/IPD framework when carried-out simultaneously

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review

As a response to an increasingly growing complexity in construction projects, more sophisticated and advanced project delivery methods are being emerged to make the construction process more efficient, productive, and reliable. The methods have evolved from the more conventional methods of design-bid-build, design-build, and construction-manager-at-risk into what are known as Lean Construction (LC), Building Information Modelling (BIM), and Integrated Project Delivery (IPD). In theory, the application of such advanced methodologies provides improvements in the construction process, but recent research studies have reported their ineffectiveness when they are used in isolation. This paper aims to review the benefits of using BIM/LC/IPD framework when used simultaneously. The research begins with a comprehensive review of the literature and then adopts a Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) methodology to study two building cases in the USA and Canada. This is the conclusion of this paper that the application of BIM/LC/IPD framework not only improves the project performance but also results in various advantages. The outcome of this research study is relevant to the companies who are considering implementing these methods, via the use of results to better perceiving and navigating the studied methods and to think about changes in the construction sector.
