“We do not win on the project – we win in pre-construction,” says colleague Jason Schroeder.  And indeed, if 70% of the project costs are locked in during the earliest stage of design, then at least 70% of probable success is determined in the Pre-construction Phase – which in recent years overlaps with design.  Pre-construction has become far more than building strategy, procurement and buy-out.  In this fast-paced 4-hour session we will explore how some of the most successful general contractors are utilizing Lean methodologies and approaches to assure successful project outcomes:  quality and safety “designed-in” along with offsite fabrication and pre-assembly, long lead-time procurement, construction plans that predict and overcome constraints, schedules that flow, buyout coordination for materials and sequencing, IT integration from the beginning, the right team size, supportive budgets for operational success, and trade contractor buy-in and behaviors. Includes stories of case histories and plenty of time for discussion and questions. Come away with a fresh approach to PreCon!

**This Workshop is not part of the Lean Construction Education program but does build on content from the Lean Construction Education Program (LCEP) Unit 6 Lean Design and Pre-construction and describes how to improve project outcomes by getting off to the right start. No prerequisites are needed to participate in this workshop. CM-Lean holders will earn 4 hours of credit toward the renewal of their credential.**

Note this is an interactive workshop and participants are highly encouraged to participate with webcams on.
