In tenth grade, I was subjected to the torture of geometry, and more specifically proofs, which were unlike any math I had ever encountered. As was the case for me with higher level math, it took time for the material to make sense—long after my lesson and class year had finished. For half of the year, […]

In an article on the Seattle Children’s Bellevue Clinic in Green Source’s March+April 2012 issue, I read a couple of sentences about how the project was delivered in the IPD model, or Integrated Project Delivery. I am surprised how positively IPD is still portrayed as something new and good for the owner. Is it really? The article mentions […]

Like many other machinations of industry, design-build (DB) has evolved. What was once a new idea and an exciting concept, is not so novel anymore, especially with groups touting Integrated Project Delivery (IPD). IPD is the new kid in school everyone wants to befriend.

As I have written before, empathy is very important to understanding the patient experience as a health care designer.  In fact, it is a key human trait and skill, so much so that empathy was one of the six attributes author Dan Pink selected as a right-brain essential for future career success in his book, A Whole New Mind. Empathy is […]

Special Culture Required for IPD

If Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) is a little difficult to pull off for most teams, it is probably because a different service pardigm is required for proper execution. Although we cannot take credit for its invention, at Haskell we use the term “servant leadership”, and it is one of the core values we work by whether […]
