We want to make construction better...

Advancing the knowledge, capability and application of Lean Construction and Continuous Improvement principles in the Building, Construction, Architecture and Engineering Industries. 

Our Mission

The company is established as a not for profit organisation, with the purpose of advancing the knowledge, capability and application of Lean and Continuous Improvement principles, methods and collaborations across the Building, Construction and Engineering industries, education providers, peak bodies, government and other related associations in pursuit of increased value delivery, resource utilisation, reliability and safety 

How we do it:

Learning & Development Program

Support the supply chain to establish lean construction leadership programs, certification programs and publishing of industry case studies. from the LCANZ network.

Research Program

Support members to enable effective linkages to undertake collaborative research between industry and academia, and provide resource projects and peer reviewed publications of research and industry case studies.

Events Program

Establish a series of national and regional lean events aimed at supporting the ongoing application of lean construction within ANZ.
Events include the annual national conference, national though leadership series and local regional events.

10 Benefits of LEAN Construction

Lean is Cheaper!

improved efficiency, reduced waste and shorter project durations.

This is the heading

Studies have shown that almost half of all projects using lean construction tools and processes are completed under budget with 64% of projects reporting improved profitability and potential cost savings of up to 30%.

Lean is Faster!

By increasing how much work gets done each day, lean projects are typically 30% faster

This is the heading

On average in any given week only 54% of planned construction activities are actually completed. The Last Planner System makes it possible to significantly increase schedule reliability and reduce project durations by up to 30%!

Lean is Safer

Reducing Hazards, unplanned work and improve housekeeping through lean culture

This is the heading

Most safety incidents occur when people undertake unplanned events. By reducing unplanned events we can thus improve safety. Use of 5S also significantly reduces the number of workplace hazards.

Happier Clients

Lean is built on a foundation of respect for people, and a focus on customer value

This is the heading

Rather than the current project zero sum game where there can only be one ‘winner’, Lean Construction seeks to align the interests of project stakeholders through use of collaborative tools like Integrated Project Delivery (IPD).

Improved Sustainability

The primary focus of lean construction is the reduction of waste in all its forms.

This is the heading

These wastes include rework, unnecessary transportation, over-production and extra processing. A reduction in these wastes results in a reduction of energy consumption and resource use thus improving the sustainability of the construction process

Less Disputes

Lean Construction reduces construction disputes through development of aligned project goals
A recent survey by PlanGrid found that on average a construction engineer will spend 3.4 hours a week dealing with disputes. This time spent dealing with disputes is a form of waste for everyone but the lawyers!

Improved Risk Management

Lean Construction adopts a partnership-based approach to risk management
Increased collaboration and communication through lean construction processes results in earlier identification of project risks providing more time for development of appropriate mitigation strategies

Happier Employees

Reduced rework, and higher collaboration leads to better project culture
Nobody likes having to do the same task again, waiting for other people to finish their job so they can start theirs or coming to work to spend the day arguing with someone else.

Better Quality Project

teams work together to achieve best for project outcomes
Lean Construction seeks to align the interests of all project stakeholders through use of collaborative forms of contract and lean tools promote increased collaboration and communication.

Reduced Life Cycle Cost

Reduced waste, reduced rework and higher quality outcomes.
Lean Cosntruction supports the use of broader industry tools such as Building Information Modelling (BIM) as it facilitates collaboration in the design process, reduces design errors.
