Lunch Presentation: Introduction to IPD through Autodesk AEC Headquarters
An introduction to IPD through a discussion of one of Tocci’s IPD projects: the Autodesk AEC Headquarters in Waltham, MA. KlingStubbins, Tocci and Autodesk utilized an IPD agreement to deliver a project that exceeded expectations. The Autodesk AEC Headquarters was completed, from no design to Certificate of Occupancy, in 8 months with zero non-discretionary change orders. To date, the project has won over 15 awards, including the 2009 AIA Technology in Architectural Practice BIM Award and the 2009 International Interior Design Association Best Office Award. Participants will be able to:

  • List the key components of an IPD project and contract
  • Compare the phasing of an IPD project to a traditional project
  • Explain the differences between “lonely”, “social” and “intimate” BIM
  • Identify ways to use BIM on an IPD project

Register for Lunch Only

Seminar: IPD Constructs – How It Really Works
The seminar will dive into each of IPD’s required principles, so that participants understand the mechanisms behind the contract form. The principles are self-reinforcing and together enable a set of behaviors that create successful projects. The seminar will largely be based on the Hanson Bridgett, LLP form of agreement; although, the AIA and ConsensusDOCS forms will be referenced.  Several IPD projects and negotiations will be included as case studies, including the Autodesk AEC Headquarters and the Marlborough Hospital Cancer Pavilion.  Participants will be able to:

  • Identify the key steps of negotiating an IPD agreement
  • Explain the IPD cost structure
  • Describe the IPD team structure
  • Define key integrated workflows

Laura Handler manages the staff and workflow of the Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) team. She develops policies and standards for use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) software and protocols for BIM development and management. Laura guides Tocci’s projects ensuring that maximum ROI for BIM Implementation is obtained. Laura also manages innovation and R&D, testing and optimizing new and existing technologies such as laser scanning, BIM for facilities management and code-checking.

Apart from her roles at Tocci, Laura is considered a national Leader in BIM, serving as a key member of the AFC BIMForum, an organization dedicated to “making BIM work now”. She is the chairperson of the Boston Revit Users Group and serves as a liaison to the AIA Contract Documents Committee’s Task Group C which focuses on digital practice documents including the AIA E202.
