Lean Construction

Lean Construction

Lean Construction is a systematic method of eliminating waste activity from the construction process to improve customer value in time, cost and quality. "Lean" methodology has its origins in the automotive manufacturing industry and is responsible for transforming the levels of productivity across the sector in the last 50 years. Since being introduced into construction in the early 2000's, Lean has been encouraged by subsequent releases of government policy and industry guidance as a 'must do' in achieving significant cost reduction in the sector. Typically, lean construction aims at delivering a range improvements including:

  • Reduce construction costs by up to 25%
  • Reduce construction timescales by up to 25%
  • Improve quality to ensure minimum defects and correction work
  • Improve your customer satisfaction ratings
  • Help implement new operational processes such as BIM and Collaborative Working
