#valuedelivery Campaign Submissions

LCI corporate members deliver value from the beginning of the design until project delivery while eliminating waste and practicing Lean thinking along the way. To showcase how LCI corporate members are delivering value to project teams and to owners, LCI launched the #valuedelivery campaign calling for Lean photo submissions and one lucky LCI corporate member won a core program (Oct. 18 - 19) registration to the 2017 LCI Congress in Anaheim, Calif.! See the #valuedelivery photos here and watch out for them on all LCI social media – we want to show how LCI corporate members transform the built environment through Lean implementation. To join in on the fun, become an LCI corporate member today!

PCL Construction

Daily Field Management pcl_daily-field-management

This snapshot of our field office exemplifies additional Lean planning techniques used daily. On the wall are floorplans for each level with stickies colored per trade. Because of our tight schedule and sequence all trade contractors are required to follow a specific flow and complete a certain quantity of rooms per day. Without following an exact sequence of flow trades will end up behind or stacking. Daily huddles and stickies allow us to correctly and quickly track all trades. On the TV is a screenshot of our 3D scans, allowing us to dimension and confirm rebar and PT band locations if coring or slab rework is needed efficiently without the need for expensive X-ray scans.

PCL Construction

PCL Orlando, FL - CitiTower pcl-orlando-fl-cititower

CitiTower is a 25 story building in downtown Orlando, FL. Every aspect of the job requires a Lean mindset due to the complexity, budget, and logistics. As you can see the site restrictions on the project require the use of mobile mastclimbers in lieu of typical scaffolding to complete the exterior of the building. Also, because of the limited space for storage, deliveries are all just-in-time for installation. All deliveries are scheduled on a digital calendar a month in advance to properly plan buck hoist availability.


Lean People & Processes:

Black & Veatch

Black & Veatch "Stands Up" to change bv_standup-to-change_1

Engineers in Black & Veatch's Special Projects Group use Stand-Up meetings to collaborate across the cubicle and country. The basketball is not just because we are Jayhawk fans, but also a way of focusing attention on the speaker.

Black & Veatch

Our improved way of capturing information (Delta) bv_standup-3_our-improved-way-of-capturing-information-delta

Now lessons learned are recorded real-time on OneNote where topics may be recalled and searched for further use. We have shortened our design investigation cycles and seen faster implementation of change since the "Stand-Up" has become part of our culture.
