This team uses a more integrated project approach, in lieu of the traditional linear segregated gathering of knowledge. The more integrated approach is one that builds on contributions of knowledge and expertise from the onset.

At the core of an integrated project are productive and collaborative teams that are composed of key project participants; that are guided by the principles of trust, transparent processes, open information sharing, and value-based decision making. Utilization of full technological capabilities including the proven 3-D building information modeling (BIM), the life cycle material and systems cost analysis, and the cost control and project scheduling softwares support all team efforts.
