Central Florida

LCI Central Florida Community of Practice

Welcome to the Central Florida Community of Practice (CoP) website!  The CoP’s purpose is to educate our members on how to improve the productivity and efficiency of everything they do.  We advocate use of Lean principles and tools in all areas of business including the office, shops, vehicles, and at the jobsites.  Through programming and development, the Central Florida CoP helps our members learn and grasp Lean terms and techniques, having a positive impact on the culture change that needs to happen for Lean practices to be implemented.  We have created a Lean forum where you can learn how the Lean process organizes operations and supplies to make the most of available labor, space, and capital.

Lean is not a program that is ever finished; it becomes the culture of the company, therefore providing greater value to all of our customers.

Whether you are researching what Lean Construction is about, just starting your Lean Journey, or have been at it for years, we welcome you to join our upcoming events.  To become more involved in the Central Florida CoP, please contact Ted Angelo, Chair, at Ted.Angelo@grunau.us.

A Tale of Two IPD Projects & The Building of Tron (Florida & Shanghai): Comparison of Lean Construction Techniques

Walt Disney Imagineering partners with Whiting-Turner Contracting in this 2-part presentation

1. Team of 4 speaks to similarities & differences in construction management while delivering two concurrent IPD projects to the same owner by the same general contractor. These projects utilized the same IPD contract language and started at nearly the same time. The tools and techniques utilized by the same pool of people diverged significantly to align the scale and needs for each project. This is a great example of the PDCA cycle and enabling teams to use methods most effective within their project organization.

Team presenting from Walt Disney Imagineering are Tim Warzecha and Lauren Niederhiser. Presenting from Whiting-Turner Contracting Co, are Matt Bleakley and Matt Thomas.

2. Team of 3 explains the building of Tron in Shanghai, where construction teams introduced facets of Lean to a culture which was modernizing before their eyes. This presentation looks at those implementation strategies and the effects on delivery. Under the idea of Continuous Improvement, the Florida Tron team presents how they are delivering the same attraction in an all new setting while implementing cutting-edge approaches to Lean design and delivery.

Team presenting the 2nd part from Walt Disney Imagineering are Michael Demetriades and Michael Herman, joined by Matt Thomas of Whiting-Turner Contracting Co.
