IPI allows great

It is a curse on our industry that a party can be ignored or not monitored. We often get asked what the benefits of IPI

We particularly like Derby Museums Project Director, Hannah Fox's comment about being an "unapologetic advocate"  of the IPI Model of procurement and delivery. We are equally fans of the way Derby Museums think in terms of co-production real synergy between us.

Journals all round still cant help but separate the team "main contractor" "architect" etc - the IPI Model contractually makes the whole alliance responsible for design, delivery and cost - that's what makes us unique so the alliance is responsible for all and each of the mentioned businesses are part of the main alliance. The suppliers are also subcontracted into the alliance and employed differently.
