Abstract— The demand of industry towards project collaboration and systematic integration had resulted in the development of integrated project delivery (IPD). IPD is served as an innovative project delivery method in the industry which able to improve project performances in terms of time, cost, quality and productivity. However, the awareness and adoption of IPD in construction projects are still below satisfaction level. This paper aims to evaluate IPD integration in construction industry. In order to achieve the aim, the principles, level of IPD integration and barriers are determined to accommodate different industry players. Metaanalysis had been exercised in this study to validate information and to realize the actuality of this study. The IPD principles are re-categorized in accordance to IPD integration level. Besides, IPD implementation barriers are identified. This study is significant for the stakeholders to demonstrate the proactive ways in fostering IPD collaboration; while barriers mitigation and avoidance will maximize the efficiency of IPD in construction projects. This study attempts to develop a conceptual framework of IPD integration in the construction industry.
