LCI Colorado Community of Practice

1.0  Who

Our LCI Colorado (CO) Community of Practice (CoP) is a group of lean practitioners at various levels of practice, who are committed to:

  • Helping the AEC industry supply chain in Colorado make a new way of doing business, the “new common sense” way.
  • Enabling the AEC industry supply chain learn rapidly and continue to improve the value delivered to customers of capital projects, as well as the value to all who use the facility in the future.

2.0  Why

  • We believe that deep application of lean principles improves the definition of needs, design, construction, and operation of capital facilities.
  • We also believe that application of lean principles to run the day-to-day operation of any organization improves the ability of the organization and its employees to deliver better services to their customers.

3.0  How

  • Borrowing from the technique advocated in integrated forms of agreement, we have a broadly representative Core Group (CG) within our CoP to ensure our CoP activities and events will benefit the mission of LCI, appeal to a broader OAC audience, and add value for those who attend.
  • To apply lean principles effectively, we must have conversations that include all members of the OAC community.
  • We have discovered that holding meetings to share what we have learned with representatives of the Owner, Designer, Contractor and Trade supply chain in Colorado accelerates the benefits to the people and the projects in that region.
  • As lean practices continue to improve within our CoP, these too are shared to advance the benefits to companies and projects.
  • Ultimately, our CoP accelerates and expands improvements to facilities, projects and companies in it’s geographic area.

Taste of Congress 2019 – Round 2 (Colorado CoP) @ AGC of Colorado
Oct 4 @ 7:30 am – 9:00 am

Every year abstracts from around the country are submitted to LCI National to present at LCI Congress in front of hundreds of owners, the design community, trade partners, and general contractors. This year Colorado had seven abstracts chosen to present at LCI Congress in Fort Worth, Tx. The Colorado CoP would like to share snippets of those stories with our community. Our second two presentations are focused on contracts and Lean culture, and will be shorter versions than what will be presented at Congress.

(1) Do the Contract Type and Contractual Relationships Matter? This Owner Says YES!

Learn how one of the nation’s Top 10 Children’s Hospitals is trandforming the way their Colorado Colorado construction projects are delivered.  The journey has included many lessons learned and challenges as they navigate trying to change nbehaviours and break through the all too common issues with budget and schedule.  The owner and key partners will share the research completed that compares pre-construction data as well as findngs from a short survey of project participants to analyze the differences in contracting methods and outcomes,  Hear directly from an owner what strategies worked and what you may not want to do! 

The presenting team is:

     • Katie Page, GE Johnson Construction;
     • Sean Mulholland, Children’s Hospital Colorado
     • Caroline Clevenger, University of Colorado, Denver
     • George LaClaire, Sturgeon ELectric

(2) 3 Ways to Drive Lean Culture in the Field, Regardless of Your Contracting Method

In order for Lean/IPD projects to reach the team’s full potential, we must train and change the behavior of the entire team… not just the management team.  On two of our company’s large Lean projects, our teams implemented new efforts to engage and improve the culture in the field.  One project was a large hospital expansion with a multi-party IPD contract, while the other was a large pharmaceutical project that had a traditional contracting method, but organized and operated Lean.  We will share what our teams implemented to combat common construction challenges in hte field, like safety culture, committment to upholding schedule and budget, and job site cleanliness.  We hope people can take away that Lean concepts in the field can be applied and successful, regardless of the contract type!

The presenting team is:

     • Katie Page, GE Johnson Construction
     • Nathan Russell, GE Johnson Construction
     • Howard Tapia, GE Johnson Construction

WEBINAR: SlatPlanner: Linking Physical and Digital Planning @ webinar
Sep 27 @ 11:00 am – 11:30 am

LCI_Congress_2019_Banner_600x222BuildFore SlatPlanner Stacked 280x125-01_New-01

Despite recent advances in technology, many projects still turn to physical, collaborative planning; with great success. However, wall planning requires more manual maintenance and is difficult to track. Digital planning makes analysis easy, though, it is more difficult to get full participation and buy in. SlatPlanner is the link between digital and physical planning. Making its debut at LCI Congress, SlatPlanner is a hybrid hardware and software solution that puts the schedule info into the hands of your field supervisors. In this webinar, get a sneak peek at this innovative and affordable system and learn how it will streamline your scheduling experience.

Presenters:

Steve Moore and Daniel Fahmi Soliman – Buildfore

Today, there’s an app for everything and that technology is great, except when it hinders productivity instead of helping. Construction Schedulers Steve Moore and Daniel Fahmi Soliman have dedicated themselves to creating hybrid solutions that allow technology to enhance workflows while embracing and improving the physical experience.
