Job Order Contracting

Job Order Contracting, JOC,  and Integrated Project Delivery, IPD are LEAN Construction Delivery Methods.  JOC is specifically developed for renovation, repair, and minor new construction, whereas IPD is used for major new construction.   Both have a proven track records and are capable of delivering over 90% of project on-time, on-budget, and to the satisfaction of all participants and stakeholders.


Job Order Contacting measurably improves productivity, quality, and overall satisfaction for renovation, repair, maintenance, sustainability, or minor new construction projects.

 Job Order Contracting and IPD share several characteristics…
  • Shared risk/reward
  • Written Operations / Execution Manuals and required work flows, common data formats, and technologies.
  • Ongoing training  to maintain minimum standards of proficiency and performance
  • Required levels of cooperation among internal and external project participants with a focus upon outcomes
  • Shared opportunity for participants to collectively discuss and comment on subjects of common interests

“It is responsibility of real property owners to provide leadership, knowledge, support, and to assure the type and levels of planning, capability, tools, information, and processes exist to improve construction outcomes.”


Job Order Contracting creates “win-win” relationships among owners, building users, contractors, and other stakeholders.
