The ConsensusDocs Coalition has published the 300 Multi-Party Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) Agreement and the related 396 Joining Agreement. 

The new documents reflect a comprehensive revision of the ConsensusDocs 300 IPD Agreement, which was an industry-first document when published in 2007. “This document achieves a significant breakthrough and should become the most used standard IPD agreement based upon the positive feedback received to date,” says Joe Cleves, Construction head and partner at DBL Law. “In many ways, the 300 is the Coalition’s flagship contract, because it reflects the collaboration and utilization of best practices that are central tenants of ConsensusDocs to improve the A/E/C industry.”

“This update provides a clear articulation of how to contract for lean integrated project delivery by addressing the construction process, commercial terms, and organizational structure,” comments Brian Perlberg Executive Director of ConsensusDocs. “There are no other IPD standard documents that address all of these areas.

A complimentary Guidebook will soon be available on the ConsensusDocs website.  The Guidebook will highlight issues, provide sample Risk Pool Plans, and offer a sample responsibility allocation matrix.
