How We Saved $25 Million and Six Months
July 21, 2020
Brasfield & Gorrie’s Cone Health Women’s and Children’s Center at Moses Cone Hospital project was delivered using an integrated project delivery (IPD) contract and Lean methods. The six-floor, 197,000 sq ft facility was delivered for $25 million less than the original budget and six months ahead of schedule. This project is a striking example of the benefits of IPD and the principles that are critical for IPD success.
The Cone Health Women’s and Children’s Center project showcased the best of what IPD can be. The relationships between partners were critical in maximizing expertise and creating efficiencies from the start. The project’s time and cost savings resulted from the strength of the team and the delivery method, and Cone Health is building its next IPD project with many of the same team members.
