Integrated Design and Delivery Solutions
Edited by Matthijs Prins and Robert Owen
Integrated design and delivery solutions (IDDS) represent a significant new research trajectory in the integration of architecture and construction through the rapid adoption of new processes. This book examines the ways in which collaboration and new methods of contracting and procurement enhance skills and improve processes in terms of lean and sustainable construction.
Based on high quality research and practice-based examples that provide key insights into IDDS and its future potential, this book surveys the technologies that are being employed to create more sustainable buildings with added value for clients, stakeholders and society as whole.
