What is IPI?

The International Partnering Institute (IPI) is a member-focused 501(c)(3) nonprofit.

Comprised of more than 150 member organizations, we serve Owners, CM Firms, Designers, Contractors, and Facilitators.

Our mission is to transform the construction industry to achieve exceptional results through a culture of collaboration.

IPI provides the following:

Education

We bring the Construction Partnering model to new agencies, organizations, and academic institutions to broaden their understanding of Construction Partnering as a means to improve construction project outcomes. Our regular virtual forums engage members with innovative topics on Construction Partnering.

Research and Development

We conduct research to increase the body of knowledge on Construction Partnering and develop tools that the industry can use to improve project delivery.

Recognition

We recognize teams who achieve exceptional outcomes through Construction Partnering by highlighting their success stories in our newsletter and Partnering Magazine and by honoring them at our Annual IPI Partnering Awards Ceremony.

Guidance

We guide our members by connecting them with a network of mentors, and by providing them access to research and other resources.

Learning Opportunities

Throughout the year we hold events such as Virtual Forums and NetWorkshops to create a stronger Partnering network and to support professional development. See our event calendar for upcoming events! Our committees create the space for IPI members to network with others within their industry, learn more, share best practices, and develop tools on a regular basis.

Facilitator Certification and Professional Development

We certify the experience of facilitators who demonstrate their qualifications and knowledge of Construction Partnering. We also provide a forum for professional development to improve standards of practice in Construction Partnering.
