Course Overview 

What is lean construction?

Lean construction is developed from the unending pursuit of improvement in construction and has a goal of ensuring the cost of construction is as minimum as possible. Everyone in the construction industry would like to do the job faster and at a reduced price. Right from the designers who want to finish up their job and get to the next one, to the project owners who want to get their project finished at a minimum and optimised cost. Lean construction training offers an insightful perspective on how to maximise the value of any starting or ongoing construction project. Thi is done through detailed processes such as a good design, activation, construction, salvaging, recycling, operations, and maintenance.

How do you do lean construction?

Lean production has been successfully utilised in manufacturing with some substantial gains, which can be leveraged and used effectively in the construction industry. Lean production stands a chance of dramatically improving the construction process and industry at large. This is because lot of elements and techniques can be utilised and ported over to the construction process.

This Zoe course will explore some of the world’s best lean construction practices and standards, delivering them in the most memorable way to those who will participate. Zoe Talent professional tutors will give insight into the key concepts and practically apply them to your construction project to get dramatic results in cost-saving and speed while maintaining quality.

Some of the highlights will be:

  • Understanding the concept of continuous improvement
  • How to leverage the concepts of lean in construction
  • Optimising and minimising waste
  • Production systems variations
  • Design and pre-construction by using lean concepts
  • Problem-solving techniques
  • The best ways to work structure

Course Objectives

The main objectives of this course are to enable the professionals who undertake it to:

  • Thoroughly understand lean construction best practices
  • Oversee multiple functions in construction projects ensuring that all the activities and functions run smoothly while optimising and minimising the cost
  • Apply advanced techniques and tools in construction to enhance the quality and speed of work in any project
  • Train other important professionals in the project on the best ways to minimise waste and use lean concepts
  • Contribute to organisational profit, development, and credibility by utilising the best methods and concepts in construction
  • Review existing practices to ensure they reduce both time and resources on any project
  • Predict project expenditure accurately and ensure that the project does not waste resources

Training Methodology

This course will be handled by industry best professionals who have a deep and clear understanding of how lean construction concepts can be applied practically to any project. The course will give the participants the technical skills and knowledge necessary to apply lean productivity techniques to construction projects. Case studies, practical exercises, and detailed attention to everyone undertaking this course shall be guaranteed with the goal to ensure maximum understanding of concepts.

Active participation by engagement is encouraged in this course, and experiential learning, scenario analysis, and review of learning materials are highly considered an important part of this course. Like all our acclaimed courses, this program also follows the ‘Do-Review-Learn-Apply’ model.
