Lean Construction is proven to significantly reduce construction costs and speed delivery. The problems of management and supply chain logistics are essentially the same in all industries: consistently getting the right quality materials and people, in the right quantity, in the right place, at the right time. Irregularity of work-flow causes uncertainty, waste and delay. Numerous studies have highlighted the waste in construction, and it is a fact that infrastructure costs 20% more in the UK than in most of Europe. Lean Construction is a proven methodology to reduce waste, smooth workflow and hence deliver projects earlier for less cost.
