About LCANZ

Lean Construction Australia and New Zealand is the pre-eminent organisation promoting and supporting higher levels of sustainable performance in the Australian and New Zealand construction sector. Lean Construction ANZ operated through a Board of Directors and Regional Councils comprising lean leaders from the private, public and education sectors.

The construction sector in Australia and New Zealand exhibits a high incidence of project cost and time overruns, business insolvencies and stagnant productivity.   Applying lean construction principles offers a way to enhance project success and increase the likelihood that projects will be more collaborative, have less wasted effort and deliver appreciable customer value.

Lean Construction ANZ has access to global expertise, reference documents, research papers and training opportunities through affiliation with organisations such as the International Group for Lean Construction (IGLC), Lean Construction Institutes (LCI) in the USA, UK, Europe, and South America.

Membership opens networking opportunities, access to the significant body of knowledge and the opportunity to participate with thought leaders in progressing the construction sector to create higher levels of value through practice and process change.

Sponsors can align their brand with the lean journey to reform the construction sector.
