Integrated project delivery is becoming an increasingly popular approach to the design and construction of buildings and often takes the form of an architectural firm teaming with a construction company early in the construction process. Hoffman has been using this approach since 1977. In-house planning, design, and construction staff collaborate on projects from their very inception, while field project managers provide input during the development of construction documents and bidding. During construction, the design team remains in frequent contact with the construction and field project managers, ensuring a seamless process throughout the planning, design, and delivery of a project. TPM, and the elevated version TPMg (Total Project Management: Vision Taken to the Power of Green), ensures that all projects are equally considering the four critical components of healthy productive environments, budget-driven capital costs, sustainable design and delivery, and value-added life-cycle cost savings. Although the construction industry is only now moving in the direction of integrated teams of design and construction firms, Hoffman has been a fully integrated design and construction firm for over three decades.
