Integrated Project Delivery Comes to Illinois

Power joined partners – Integrated Facilities Solutions, InterWork Architects, Primera Engineers, Dickerson Engineering and NorthShore – in signing one of the first Integrated Form of Agreement (IFOA) contracts in the state of Illinois. Contractual commitments of the integrated team included:
