Success with San Diego Lean Project Delivery Highlighted at International Conference in Oslo
San Diego, CA, July 7, 2014 – How did the San Diego Community College District, a public agency, save an average of $900,000 per project, save $13.6M in change orders over past experience, yield an additional $7.7M in project savings and reduce maintenance costs by 53% over 3 years? The answers to these questions were part of a paper presented at the 2014 International Group for Lean Construction Conference in Oslo, Norway in late June. Representatives from over 30 countries were in attendance to share current research and best management practices related to Lean construction throughout the world. Lean construction is the application of principles and practices to eliminate waste and deliver greater value to the customer in delivery of capital construction projects.
