Lean Construction Management

Lean Construction Management

Lean Construction Management – the ultimate project accelerator

The core idea of lean management theory is the avoidance of all types of waste through constant enhancement of efficiency. We apply this principle to the construction process with our Lean Construction Management system – and deploy it successfully on building sites around the world. The key outcome is a significant reduction in construction time. We train your project management and construction site personnel in the application of our system. The project is first analyzed jointly in workshops, identifying and sequencing the various processes required for implementation. The processes are then scheduled and an adjusted takt time is applied. In this way, our experts avoid collisions and disruptions, as all trades work their way through the building site at the same speed.

A board with tracking cards – adapted to the specific needs of the project – allows simple and flexible visualization and monitoring of daily construction site goals. We can also integrate other processes – such as safety inspections, bottleneck resource utilization, or user equipment installation planning into the system.

As the system is BIM-ready (5D), it is the ideal tool if you want to organize building site scheduling using Building Information Modeling.

On average, Drees & Sommer can cut construction time for its customers by about 20 percent!
