This paper investigates the effectiveness of Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) in the context of complementary construction practices such as Building Information Modeling (BIM), Lean Construction, and sustainability practices. Through a comprehensive literature review, case study analysis, and empirical data examination, the research highlights IPD's potential to significantly improve construction project outcomes, including cost efficiency, time management, quality, and stakeholder satisfaction. The study draws on various scholarly articles and case studies to illustrate how IPD facilitates collaboration among stakeholders, aligns project goals, and integrates innovative construction practices to enhance project delivery. Key findings indicate that IPD, when effectively implemented in conjunction with complementary practices, leads to enhanced project performance metrics and stakeholder satisfaction. However, challenges such as cultural and organizational barriers, resistance to change, and the necessity for high technical competency are identified as potential obstacles to IPD adoption. The paper provides practical implications for construction professionals and project managers, offering recommendations for the successful implementation of IPD and suggestions for integrating it with other construction practices to maximize project success. Concluding remarks emphasize the transformative potential of IPD in the construction industry, advocating for further research into its long-term impacts, the influence of cultural and geographical factors, and its integration with emerging technologies. The study contributes to the growing body of knowledge on IPD and serves as a resource for construction professionals seeking to leverage collaborative project delivery methods to achieve superior project outcomes.
