How Integrated Project Delivery Enables Speed: A Phase-By-Phase Guide

By eliminating the waste involved in traditional approaches to project set-up and execution, integrated project delivery helps innovators in the European life sciences market meet their fast-track delivery targets.

The European life sciences industry is red hot. The DACH (Germany, Austria, and Switzerland) region alone, attracted nearly 20% of Europe’s biggest life sciences investments last year. With this influx of cash comes the potential for commercial success and for a new generation of advanced, life-saving therapies. To unlock that potential, though, life science innovators need more—more manufacturing capacity, more flexibility, and more expertise to get their products to market faster.

The key to ‘more’ is sometimes ‘less’: less wasted effort, more value for the project owner; less fragmentation between teams, more shared expertise. These subtle shifts are the key to delivering complex, high-value facilities faster and more cost-effectively. The shifts are not easy to embrace, but they will pay off a hundredfold for teams who successfully make the transition. That means adopting a lean culture and using it to power an integrated project delivery approach.
