Integrated Project Delivery: Virtual Design to Construction

Ted Corbin, Associate AIA, is the force behind securing host venue status in Eugene for a unique, interactive webinar focused on the legal and management aspects of Integrated Project Delivery (IPD). Produced by a company named DESIGN[realized], the webinar is the first of a four-part series about IPD.

DESIGN[realized] says the series will explore how successful designers, builders, and building owners achieve significant project goals through the best use of process and technology. The sessions will delve into the best current thinking on legal, management, and technological issues associated with IPD. Speakers will share winning techniques to adopt, losing techniques to avoid, and other key experience gained as they have implemented IPD processes with virtual design to construction methodologies.

Ted will serve as the local facilitator during the webinar, which will take place on Friday, July 22nd from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in the boardroom of Summit Bank's downtown Eugene office (96 East Broadway).

The format is different than most webinars. A one-hour webcast featuring leading industry experts kicks off the program at 9:00 a.m. followed by 30 minutes of local discussion among the Eugene attendees. The webcast resumes at 10:30 a.m. with a follow-up local discussion to conclude the session.

By participating in the event, you will:
  • Learn how building professionals from around the country engage in IPD
  • Get new ideas for incorporating building processes and technology into your work
  • Share with other group participants building methods and techniques that are applicable locally
  • Hear interactive Q&A discussions among presenters and participants across the nation
  • Earn 3.0 AIA Continuing Education System (CES) credits
Eugene will be one of many host venues around the country but the only one in Oregon.

According to Ted, the discounted early bird registration fee expired last Friday (July 8); however, he is going to see what he can do to extend the bargain rate because the AIA and DESIGN[realized] acted so late to get the word out. Regardless, you can secure the $10 discount if you are an AIA member. The full event price is $55. Registration is online.

Ted hopes to draw as wide a spectrum of participants to the webinar as possible. The involvement of more people, each bringing their unique perspective to the discussion, will enhance the educational value of the experience for everyone.

Email Ted at with any questions you may have regarding the webinar. He hopes to see all of us on July 22 at Summit Bank.
