Group2 has made significant investments in research to foster growth in strategic areas. From innovative engagement methods to new project delivery models, Group2 is an industry leader able to adapt. Our extensive collaboration with industry partners has allowed us to make considerable contributions to the advancement of BIM technology within our industry and the success of Integrated Project Delivery in Canada.
Integrated Project Delivery
We have developed a passion for IPD because it fits our DNA. As the architectural leader in Integrated Project Delivery in Canada, we have developed strategic relationships with consultants, contractors, trades and sub-trades to transform our industry. These relationships extend beyond typical project parameters to include participation in the development and delivery of IPD education, targeted training and research.
Group2 has been at the forefront of LEAN in design and construction for nearly a decade, working on some of the first LEAN construction projects in Canada. Our experience on IPD and LEAN construction has exposed the potential to fuse the design and delivery processes releasing exceptional value for all participants. This experience has caused us to re-imagine everything we do.
Building Information Modeling
Our investment in technology has transformed our approach to design and project management, and has dramatically enhanced our use of Building Information Modelling (BIM). By applying BIM training and education to projects, we have developed a series of best practices focused on accelerating design, streamlining construction, and adding value to the client. This experience has allowed us to better align building design with the construction process by capitalizing on opportunities for prefabrication, reducing material waste, and lowering labour costs.
