Abstract

The construction industry structure resists the adoption of systemic innovations because they

cross professional and trade specializations, break industry standards, and redefine how existing

modules are produced or fit together. Prior research has identified that vertical and/or horizontal

integration in the supply chain makes it far more likely that systemic innovations will be

adopted. This paper identifies how nine project integration strategies – i.e., risk-sharing alliance

contracts, colocated project teams – are employed within innovative project delivery methods

such as Integrated Project Delivery and explores how they facilitate collaboration to increase the

adoption of systemic innovation on complex construction projects.
