This collaborative virtual presentation will focus on the current state of the industry while showcasing Lean alternatives to both project design and overall project delivery. Be prepared to engage with your peers in group breakout rooms while discussing two case studies that will be presented outlining highly collaborative project deliveries and their outcomes. Hear and learn how a fully integrated team utilized Target Value Design and Lean delivery to design and construct a new 250,000 SF Hospital in 27 months at a construction cost 25% below the prevailing market. Join us to find out why owners, architects, engineers, and constructors are forging ahead with Lean. Attendees will learn how to use this compelling information as a call to action, and a way to change the project mindset for the better. They will leave the event with an understanding of how to get started, and the best way to tell the story.
Specific topics that will be discussed:
- Current state of the industry
- Define the opportunities to improve
- Viewing an entire project delivery team as a network of customers.
- Applying Lean to create a new framework for delivery
- Case Study 1: Banner Boswell Medical Center
- Case Study 2: Henderson Hospital.
