Project delivery according to the IPD (Integrated Project Delivery) method has been used in the US for several years and was introduced in Canada in recent years (Saskatchewan, Ontario).
Several major projects are currently underway in this innovative way, using very close collaboration between all stakeholders, introduction of innovative contractual and commercial aspects as well as massive use of BIM technology and LEAN Construction process.
The presentation of Mr. Jarle Lovlin and Pierre Laplante refers to concrete realization of IPD projects in Ontario into which Diamond Schmitt Architects have been fully involved.

Audit of the mechanisms used for monitoring the quality of works
The main challenges are related to the project scope, which includes several specialties and a large number of specialized construction activities whose efforts in quality control must be concerted.
In this context, the audit work requires a highly methodic approach to identify, validate and confirm the efficiency of all the processes planned and implemented by the project teams.
Thus, the presentation focuses on the methodology used to identify the mechanisms for monitoring the quality of the work, their documentation, their practical application and the follow-up activities carried out by the stakeholders regarding the observations raised by the control process quality.
