Continuous Improvement

Control is redefined from 'monitoring results' to 'making things happen', with a measured and improved planning process to assure reliable workflow and predictable project outcomes.

About LCI Continuous Improvement

Integrated/collaborative projects are focusing on the elimination of waste as a means of driving improved value to the process. These teams invite all participants to contribute to the value proposition. Some contracts provide for the sharing of that value increase. Lean projects specifically focus on a process of Continuous Improvement.

Removal of Waste

Lean Design and Construction enhances value on projects and uncovers wasted resources: Wasted time, Wasted movement and Wasted human potential

The 7 Wastes of Lean Construction

Waste is all around us in construction. Some put the waste level at greater than 50% in our industry. Before you can fix it, you need to learn to see it.

What are the 7 wastes?


buildingSMART’s technical core is based around a common data schema (model) called IFC that makes it possible to hold and exchange relevant data between different software applications.


openBIM provides a collaborative set of standards for models.

What is IFC & Open BIM

Optimise the whole

Maximizing value and minimizing waste at the project level is the goal, versus the traditional practice of attempting to optimize each individual activity.

Lean is bottom up, people led

Respect for People is the cornerstone of Lean thinking. People transform ideas and materials into final useful value. Furthermore, by placing people at the center of Lean Construction, we are reminded to prioritize Respect for People and avoid generating the 8th waste.

Lean Construction Defined

Generation of Value

Value to the customer is defined, created and delivered throughout the life of the project, while traditional practice calls for defining requirements at the outset for delivery at the end, despite changing markets, technology and business practices.

Focus on Process and Flow

Coordinating action through pulling and continuous flow, as opposed to the traditional, schedule-driven push which places an over-reliance on central authority and project schedules to manage resources and coordinate work.

Are you Resource of Flow Efficient?

High resource efficiency means a high percentage of value-adding time in relation to a specific time period. The resources add as much value as possible. (Like a local mechanic) High flow efficiency means a high percentage of value-receiving time in relation to the total time. The flow unit picks up as much value as possible. (like a formula one pit crew)

This is Lean
