Everyone related to the construction process has incentive to get the project done faster and at a lower cost – from the project owners who want to see tangible results for their investment to the contractors and designers who want to do their job well and move on to the next project. Lean Construction is based on the holistic pursuit of continuous improvements aimed at minimizing costs and maximizing value on a construction project: planning, design, construction, activation, operations, maintenance, salvaging, and recycling.
Fifty-one construction professionals received a new national accreditation in the use of Lean Construction, a holistic practice aimed at minimizing costs and maximizing efficiency on construction projects. The professional designation offered by AGC of America, is a new assessment-based credential to recognize construction professionals on their ability to use the process. Association officials noted that Lean theory, principles and techniques provide the foundation for a more collaborative form of project management that seeks to minimize costs and maximize efficiency on construction projects.
