An Introduction to Lean in Design & Construction - Webinar
- Apr 09, 2019 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Presenter: Jeff Scandrett, Hy-Vee Construction, LC – Des Moines, IA
This webinar will walk through the current state of the construction industry and the role that Lean construction practices will play in the future. Productivity has been declining in the United State for the last 50 years and construction operations are 43% value added versus 88% in manufacturing. The delivery model for construction must change more now than ever. This session will talk about WHY the commercial construction industry needs to change how we plan, schedule, and execute work. We will also discuss what tools are available to make these changes. Participants will leave the webinar with an understanding of what Lean Construction is, as well as have a brief introduction to the tools available.
