Lean Delivery Systems and Target Value Design

< Back to Approach
The IPD delivery method is all about efficiency and collaboration. Our team welcomes the opportunity to work together in a transparent environment. We are committed to eliminating waste and preventing change orders through detailed pre-construction planning and pull scheduling. This approach allows us to bring our operational excellence to the design phase, ensuring that what we are buildingis constructible.

Our commitment to efficiency goes beyond execution to ensure the cost is aligned with the Target Value. During the Design/Preconstruction Stage, our team will work to identify cost-efficient solutions that meet both your design and performance requirements. With the budget at the forefront, RG will vet all aspects of your project.
We will work with the entire team to determine how the proposed solutions impact the schedule and our trade partners. Scheduling, quality, and safety are built into our process to deliver the best value possible.

During the Construction Stage, our team will utilize our preconstruction deliverables in our end-to-end cloud-based platforms to ensure what was modeled and coordinated in preconstruction is what is built in the field. This includes our approach to QA/QC, whereby we leverage the model to compare our actual construction to what was agreed. Following the PDCA (Plan Do Check Act) Methodology, RG is your partner for continuous improvement.

Benefits of Lean Delivery Systems and Target Value Design


  • Provides labor & material price certainty
  • Drastically reduces or eliminates exposure to change orders
  • Provides pricing transparency by specification or assembly, allowing proactive design decisions to maximize value
  • Allows for cost neutral design shifting opportunities between trades
  • Reduces design fees
  • Diminishes bid management and general condition costs
  • Continuous cost estimating leveraging the BIM model provides pricing and design visibility and optionality.

Timing & Efficiencies

  • Faster schedules/quicker execution
  • Vetting and resolving design/constructibility issues during Preconstruction
  • Drastic reduction of RFIs during construction
  • Sequencing of fully coordinated assemblies between trades ensures optimized execution and project flow
  • Incorporating all engineering into IFC documents
  • Finalizing of Product selections/ submittals during preconstruction ensures long lead items are ordered on time
  • Identifying and developing prefabrication and modular opportunities for your project.
  • Bring A3 thinking to our decision process to ensure each opportunity is fully vetted.
Target Value Design is a collaborative design process where the budget (“Target Value”) is a critical design element.
