"Starting Projects Together" was the theme of the first IPD Summit on Tuesday, November 8, 2022 at Park Central.

In Germany, the new Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) method has already been implemented in a number of projects. In Switzerland, on the other hand, the new method is still in its infancy. But here, too, the topic is meeting with great interest, as the IPD Summit has now shown with over 120 registrations.

Speakers at the IPD Summit included pioneers of the future construction industry who enlightened participants on the various issues that should be considered in IPD.

Guest speakers were: Adrian Steiner - CEO of Thermoplan, Emmanuel Gilgen - CEO of the Digireal AGDr. Dirk Hoffmann, President of Switzerland Innovation Park Central and ex-CEO of V-Zug, Prof. Dr. Shervin Hagsheno - Head of the Department of Construction Management at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Prof. Dr. Hartmut Schulze - lecturer at the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW), Dr. Mario Marti - Managing Director of usic and attorney at Kellerhals Carrard and Maximilian Vomhof - Head Integrated Design at Swiss Property

It was a day with many interesting impressions and innovative projects and as Dr. Mario Marti nicely said: "IPD is legally implementable. Let's have the courage and try something new!"
