MS Teams Meeting
LCI Cascadia-Seattle CoP

Apex Steel Inc., Bayley Construction Inc., will be in attendance sharing how they are applying lean construction to their projects and how they are reaping tangible benefits.

  • Increased seismic steel installation from two tubes to 14 tubes per shift
  • Increased shear wall lifts from two to five per week
  • Reduced the project schedule by 6 months
  • Workforce was not increased 

Key methodologies:

  • Executive leadership from Bayley and several key trades agreed to co-lead these processes
  • They all agreed to meet between shifts, twice per week at 5:00am (all stakeholders)
  • Detailed planning including setup – pathways – lay downs – manpower - equipment availability etc. 
  • Multiple daily walks were executed to ensure everyone was tracking according to plan (monitor progress)
  • Issues were resolved immediately – escalation within minutes, not days or weeks

This will be an open discussion to ask questions and share thoughts and findings.
