|Lean Construction offers a structured methodology to maximise value for the client by eliminating waste from the entire value stream. The value stream is the sum of all activities completed by each function during the construction effort
Lean moves away from traditional approaches to construction management and instead focuses on the quality of service provided to the client.
Lean Construction generates a culture of continuous improvement that will be sustained across successive projects.
Lean Construction delivers best possible outcomes for clients
“In 2014, output per hour worked in Ireland was highest in the ICT and manufacturing sectors, and lowest in construction and agriculture” – National Competitiveness Council
Enhancing value is the essence of Lean Construction
Lean differentiates value adding activities from non-value adding activities (or waste), during each phase of construction, then works to eliminate the waste.
“Globally, labour-productivity growth in construction has averaged only 1% a year over the past two decades, compared with growth of 2.8% for the total world economy and 3.6% in the case of manufacturing” – McKinsey Global Institute, Reinventing Construction
