18 BioPharm International ® Manufacturing and Facilities 2022 eBook T he European life sciences industry is red hot. The DACH (Germany, Austria, and Switzerland) region alone, attracted near- ly 20% of Europe's biggest life sciences investments last year (1). With this inf lux of cash comes the potential for commercial success and for a new generation of advanced, life-saving thera- pies. To unlock that potential, though, life science innovators need more—more manufacturing ca- pacity, more f lexibility, and more expertise to get their products to market faster. The key to 'more' is sometimes 'less': less wasted effort, more value for the project owner; less frag- mentation between teams, more shared expertise. These subtle shif ts are the key to delivering com- plex, high-value facilities faster and more cost-ef- fectively. The shif ts are not easy to embrace, but they will pay off a hundredfold for teams who suc- cessfully make the transition. That means adopting a lean culture and using it to power an integrated project delivery approach (2). The terminology of integrated project delivery A vocabulary has been developed that turns the idea of integrated project delivery into a concrete, phase- by-phase practice, helping the benef its of the ap- proach be leveraged in the conference room, at the jobsite, and inside the working facility (Table I). Em- bracing this vocabular y is the first step in making the cultural shift from traditional delivery methods that can no longer withstand today's pressures to a method that's much more capable of supporting fast-track delivery. Shifting from the left side of Table I to the right can feel uncomfortable. This discomfort may be par- ticularly true in the European market, where project owners have a long tradition of compartmentalizing tasks and distributing them to different localized How Integrated Project Delivery Enables Speed: A Phase-By-Phase Guide Christian Goesker, is managing director, Thomas Lederer, is office lead, director EPCM Projects, and Mike Barrett, is vice president, Project Delivery Services, all at CRB Group. By eliminating the waste involved in traditional approaches to project set-up and execution, integrated project delivery helps innovators in the European life sciences market meet their fast-track delivery targets.
