LCI’s Immersive Education

Adopting Lean is often described as a journey – we all start unaware and work toward mastery. Once your team learns about the power of Lean to increase value and decrease waste on projects, you’ll want to join LCI’s mission to transform the AEC industry.

Lean for Owners

After receiving Lean learning for owners, an owner provides instruction to four construction workers on a job site.
If you’re an owner, you’re someone who invests in capital projects. Owners are responsible for hiring teams to design and construct a project. Owners are also institutions, such as hospitals, higher education, pharmaceutical companies, automotive companies, real estate developers, and the like.

Lean for Constructors

After receiving Lean learning for constructors, a construction worker observes the progress being made on a job site.
A constructor (or general contractor) is someone who does all of the building work on a project. Anyone who works for a construction company falls under this umbrella. If you’re the owner of a construction company, you’re considered a constructor for our purposes.

Lean for Designers

Whether you’re an architect, an engineer, or a designer, you fall under the category of designer. Designers are the people responsible for designing projects for construction. Owners of design firms also fall under the designer umbrella for our purposes.

Lean for Trade Partners

After receving Lean learning for trade partners, a worker in a hardhat and safety vest traverses through the job site.
If you complete installation and supply materials for projects – whether that’s plumbing, HVAC, mechanical, or another service – then you’re a trade partner. Owners of these companies also fall under this category.
