Lean Construction

"Lean promises a fresh, new approach."

The Lean Construction approach to design and building processes delivers the highest level of efficiency while minimizing waste. HSC started a lean journey many years ago and now every project utilizes lean principles when appropriate. All employees have been trained in lean and hold a company-wide “lean-centric” mindset. When incorporating lean methods at jobsites, we have found that a postive cultural shift takes place in terms of perspective, behavior, and language.

A few of the tools used in Lean Construction include Pull Planning, Plus/Delta evaluation, Conditions of Satisfaction, and Constraint Logs. To learn more about Lean tools and techniques, HSC’s Lean Guide Sheet.
