In the current competitive and complex business environment, innovation in the construction industry is vital. In this sense, integrated project delivery is an emerging delivery system for construction projects; however, implementing this system requires some enablers to enhance its implementation. Until now, no study has been conducted to identify what enablers can lead to proper integrated project delivery implementation. Therefore, this study aims to identify and to classify integrated project delivery implementation enablers. In this study, a comprehensive list of integrated project delivery implementation enablers has been developed using an in-depth literature review. Besides, integrated project delivery project managers, employers, consultants, contractors and engineers participated in a survey. The obtained results were analysed using exploratory factor analysis method. Thus, the study findings illustrated that organisational enablers are considered essential enablers, followed by environmental, contractual and technical enablers. The significance of this research is the identification and classification of integrated project delivery implementation enablers, which will provide valuable information to develop integrated project delivery implementation strategies. Additionally, the results of this study can be a proper roadmap to support developing countries to adopt the integrated project delivery approach for project developments.
