About ipi

The International Partnering Institute (IPI) is a member-focused 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Our mission is to spread the value of Collaborative Partnering to the construction industry by helping owners, and other construction leaders, understand how to Deliver Partnering that Works™.

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



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.

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


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