AltaPro has always been a company that focuses on teamwork, in fact, one of our three core values is “One Team”. The culture of an IPD is very much like the culture within AltaPro. We all succeed as a team. We support each other and all of our departments work together to conquer any challenges we may face.
This method leverages the strengths of everyone on the team and helps to build relationships amongst the team. Being a people-first company, we thrive in this environment and help the others on our teams to excel at what they do best.
It is technology forward, and we have put a lot of investment in our people and processes to make sure we leverage the technologies available to us so we can transition into this environment seamlessly where others may find it intimidating.
As a relatively new project delivery model that contractually incentivizes the companies involved in the project to collaborate with each other as well as the owner to inject the most value possible into a project. All of the team partners share a proportionally equal risk and reward so that we all succeed or fail as a team. This method encourages all of the team members to work collaboratively together and to make decisions based on how they add value to the project rather than how it can benefit individual companies or the owner.
Because we all need to work together to be successful, this generates amazing relationships and inventive solutions to problems that would otherwise be “someone else’s problem” which ultimately ends up costing the owner more. Collaborative environments are great for leveraging LEAN principles because everyone involved is committed to a successful outcome. Many of our lean initiatives have come from IPD project people and have been executed on them.
IPD undertakes a diverse range of projects, spanning from multimillion-dollar hospitals and intricate nuclear labs to smaller projects valued in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. It is more about the team and the engagement of the owner. Some projects do not require a lot of creative solutions or innovations, and can be completed using a more traditional approach. However, this does not mean that this method would not be effective for these projects.
At AltaPro we have experience with a wide variety of projects. We have done Schools, Recreation facilities, Conference centers, Mixed use buildings, Senior's housing, and Solar projects. Some of these are renovations, many are new build sites, but in the end all of them have been successful projects.
