14 In an IPD method, all stakeholders in the project, such as the owner, architect, architect’s consultants, general contractor, and subcontractors, contribute in constructing the virtual model. 15 The overall time needed for project delivery is generally shorter using IPD than a conventional delivery method, although the time needed to complete the predesign and design phases is longer in IPD. A virtual, three-dimensional model of the building is one important feature of BIM. The other important feature is that the model contains information about the physical and performance characteristics of various components of the model—walls, floors, roofs, openings, finishes, and so on.

Before commencing fabrication, the fabricator submits the shop drawings to the general contractor. The general contractor reviews them, marks them “approved,” if appropriate, 14 and then submits them to the architect for review and approval. Subcontractors or manufacturers cannot submit shop drawings directly to the architect. The review of all shop drawings is coordinated through the architect, even though they may actually be reviewed in detail by the appropriate consultant. Thus, the shop drawings pertaining to structural components are sent to the architect and then to the structural consultant for review and approval.
