Lean Construction Green Belt

Lean Construction Green Belt

At LBSPartners we understand that with Lean Construction thinking embedded in your organisation, you can enhance value and reduce waste at all stages of the construction process. All relevant sections of the process including design, tendering, administration and the actual physical build, offer the opportunity for improvement through collaboration. Lean moves away from traditional approaches to construction management and instead focuses on the efficiency and quality of service provided to the client.

Lean Construction nurtures a culture of continuous improvement in your people that will be sustained across successive projects. “Lean Construction delivers the best possible outcomes for you and your clients”. Participants are taught to identify and expose the opportunities presented by the waste in businesses. Central to the programme is practical instruction in powerful Lean tools & techniques: Last Planner, Value Stream Mapping and Target Value Design.
