Walsh were lucky enough to work on the second IPI contract of its type. Working with Speller Metcalfe Walsh Construction were involved in the IPI college in Dudley, West Midlands.
IPI involves a collaborative working contract that sees all members of the integrated project team selected at the project’s inception to form an interdisciplinary ‘alliance board’ that are insured together under a single loss-based insurance product.
The model supports innovation by aligning the team around cost, time and quality, promoting a culture of mutual trust, no blame/no claim and allowing freedom for decisions to be made on a best for project basis.
A joint statement from IPInitiatives and Dudley College of Technology, said: “The IPI Model works to bring a truly collaborative team together with no contractual or insurance barriers and we are looking forward to getting the “best for project” result for the Institute, for employers and for the region.”
