Integrated Project Delivery at Autodesk, Inc (C) Harvard Case Solution & Analysis

Describes Autodesk's engagement in Integrated Project Delivery-a fresh model of risk management, inter-company teamwork, and multi-objective (aesthetic, cost, and sustainability) optimization in construction jobs. In year 2008, Autodesk, Incorporation the world's largest design software company, decided to participate in Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) for the design and construction of its new Architecture, Engineering and Construction Options (AECS) Group headquarters, near Boston. Under IPD, the project's architect, builder, and client (Autodesk) entered a contractual agreement to share all project risks and gains.

During the job, nevertheless, Autodesk was unsatisfied with the design advancement, and asked the project team to introduce a three-story atrium in the headquarters' design. Logistically, it wasn't a great time to make changes as the team had already made significant design progress. The team was working under a tight budget and delivery deadline. On the other hand, the aesthetics would appear to be substantially enhanced by altering the design. The architect and contractor of the project had to decide whether adapting the atrium into the present program and work sequencing was an acceptable risk.
