Lean Construction in Commercial Markets

Lean Construction processes will transform your project’s delivery. As an Anslow-Bryant partner, you’ll receive customer-focused services that aim to optimize your project resources. The Anslow-Bryant Lean Method focuses on the elimination of waste. The 8 forms of waste are:

  1. Over-production
  2. Transportation
  3. Excess inventory
  4. Defects
  5. Over-processing
  6. Wasted motion
  7. Waiting time
  8. Wasted potential

A core tenant of the Anslow-Bryant Lean Method is Continuous Improvement. We are always looking for opportunities to increase value and eliminate waste at all steps of the building process and from all team members. Buy-in from all parties is essential to the Lean process; we hold Daily Huddles with all of our trade partners on-site to discuss the day’s activities, and ensure we have no unanticipated interruptions to the project. Lean at it’s core is simple: find things that bug you, and fix them.

Lean Construction at Anslow-Bryant

Anslow-Bryant utilizes Lean Construction principles and in particular the “Last Planner” methodology in our on-site schedule management. This brings added value by cutting out wasted material, wasted time, time delays, and cluttered job sites. Our Lean Construction program maximizes work flow, minimizes labor and material waste due to re-work from out of sequence operations and maximizes off-site fabrication to minimize on-site storage.

Lean is about developing principles that are right for your organization and diligently practicing them to achieve high performance that continues to add value to the customers and society.
