WEAVERCOOKE specializes in Lean Construction
The Philosophy What does Lean Construction mean at WEAVERCOOKE? Predictability, lower costs, long-time partnerships and on-schedule completion to construction projects The development of high-performing teams that handle problem-solving and are inspired to develop innovative ideas within a collaborative environment Improvements in safety, productivity and the quality of construction Waste elimination Building value for our clients during all stages of delivery Lean Construction is a way to define, design and build, and it can be applied to any project and any project delivery model. For years, WEAVERCOOKE has successfully embraced the Lean philosophy, ensuring our projects are built within the anticipated schedule, delivered at the highest quality and with lower costs incurred during the building process. Lean Construction methods focus on establishing a respect and relationship-oriented production management approach to project delivery—our standard way of doing business since 1939. Its primary goals are maximizing value and minimizing costs involved during the course of design and construction.
The Process Every one of our projects kicks off with a collaborative session to propose a model for defining customer value and how lean practices can optimize the project plan. Our purpose during construction is to facilitate conversations with owners, architects and trade contractors to collect their input and feedback for the most efficient project delivery. Our Lean evolution has brought us to adopt the Lean community’s Last Planner System (TM Lean Construction Institute) as our standard platform for project delivery, which allows us to identify and eliminate waste caused by non-value-added activities. We have found this approach provides the best experience to both our clients and extended team of trades. In our journey towards continuous improvement, we are proud to now have 24 members of our operations staff who have earned AGC’s CM- Lean designation.
