Solving issues verbally and personally will reduce the misunderstandings to a minimum, and again it is clearly of great assistance to have a 3D model as the means to share and visualize ideas. The Integrated Agreement seeks to share risk among the team members, rather than shift it. This will provide incentive to collaborate, and thus improve coordination, and reduce risk. Risk is further shared by creating one IPD team performance contingency for the project, rather than having separate design and construction contingencies.

The construction sequence in Fig. 11 begins with the piles and pile caps, then the placement of the grade beams and steel structure, after which the walls and scaffolding are shown, to be completed with the plaza and landscaping. It can also be useful to have the model be able to show exactly what has already been installed as a tracking mechanism and communication tool for billing and cost control. The model can contain the information concerning the status of its components in the fabrication, installation, and billing stages.

Either the consultants or the specialty subcontractors (if the model is to be used for fabrication purposes, thus functioning as the shop drawing) will generally model their area of responsibility in the project, so that these individual models may then be combined to show a more complete model of the project. All the parts of this composite model can be coordinated so that any existing conflicts (multiple objects occupying the same space) can be found and resolved. This process is referred to as clash detection.
