Lean Construction Advisory (LCA) is a network of highly qualified and experienced consultants that specialise in improving the performance, productivity and safety on construction projects through Lean approaches to project design and delivery and the application of Lean Construction techniques and tools.
Lean/Integrated Project Delivery is a response to customer and supply chain dissatisfaction with the results in the design and construction industry. Productivity in construction has decreased, while the efficiency in all other industries has doubled or more since the 1960s. Currently, 70% of projects worldwide are over budget and delivered late while the industry still sees about 800 deaths and thousands of injuries per year.
Lean methods seek to develop and manage a project through relationships, shared knowledge and common goals. Traditional silos of knowledge, work and effort are broken down and reorganised to achieve better overall project outcomes rather than to benefit individual participants. The results are significant improvements in schedule with dramatically reduced waste, particularly on complex and/ or uncertain projects and programs of work.
LCA’s consulting team have a broad base of international experience to draw on in being able to train staff and lead lean initiatives ranging from the building of collaborative project teams and structures through to practical ground level initiatives often used as part of project turn-around assignments.
