Abstract: The ever-changing nature of a construction project demands a management system that actively strives to minimize or eliminate the changes and updates from the start of a project. The approach to collaborate the primary participants of a project notably the client, designer, and builder is still lacking in the traditional construction processes. The use of an Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) process, rather than a traditional approach, provides an appropriate platform for the free flow of information between the stakeholders and to share the risk among all the stakeholders involved in the project. The early involvement and evaluation of the design and program of a project is an important advantage of the IPD process. This paper aims to study the concepts of IPD and the barriers to adopt the IPD in the Indian construction industry. Through literature review, data about the IPD, barriers for the adoption of IPD, and its comparison with other traditional project delivery processes is collected. The current practices and barriers in India are known from various stakeholders through a questionnaire survey. Data analysis is done using the data collected from the literature review and the questionnaire survey. This study highlights the issues in the implementation of IPD in the Indian construction industry. This study concluded that a cultural & behavioural shift is required in the Indian construction industry and also government should make a strong policy push for the successful implementation of IPD in India.
