Everyone related to the construction process has incentive to get the project done faster and at a lower cost – from the project owners who want to see tangible results for their investment to the contractors and designers who want to do their job well and move on to the next project. Lean Construction is based on the holistic pursuit of continuous improvements aimed at minimizing costs and maximizing value on a construction project: planning, design, construction, activation, operations, maintenance, salvaging and recycling.

To develop the tools needed to build lean, the General Building Contractors Association (GBCA) is providing the Lean Construction Education Program Series. Construction professionals at all experience levels will learn the building blocks necessary to transform their projects and companies into a lean operating system. Register for one unit, or get a discount by registering for all seven. Participants who intend to take the CM-LEAN test on May 23rd must attend all 7 units.

For questions please contact Angela Hendrix at (215) 568-7015.
