Attorney Will Lichtig created a new contract form for use on projects adopting Lean Project Delivery. This contract was the basis for the Tri-Party Agreement for Collaborative Project Delivery form put forth by the Consensus Document group.
The core premise of Lean Project Delivery is intensive collaboration based on trust. Critical to its successful implementation is free flowing communication between team members. Construction and design participants are brought into the project at the beginning of the design. This allows critical dialogues to take place during design rather than later, when changes become more expensive.

Underlying his complaint, was an important question: is L.E.E.D® certification a growing trend? Answering this question proved more complicated than I anticipated.
