Integrated Project Delivery
Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) is a project delivery method integrating people, systems, business structures and practices into a process that collaboratively harnesses the talents and insights of all participants. This optimizes project results, increases value to the owner, reduces waste, and maximizes efficiency through all phases of design, fabrication, and construction.

Working in a team environment has always been an integral part of Clark Construction Company’s culture. We embrace collaboration to share knowledge, learn, and build consensus among the project team. Through our collective effort, we have come to understand that success is built on the foundation of five basic principles:
- True collaboration of all team members throughout planning, design and execution.
- Maximizing our efforts toward achieving what is in the best interest of the whole project and not just certain parts.
- Tightly couple learning with action. Provide immediate feedback on what has been learned so that we gain immediate benefits.
- The success of a project is based on all team members reliably meeting the commitments they make throughout a project.
- Develop relationships among the team members founded on mutual trust and put actual effort toward building those relationships for the good of the project.
