LA/Orange County

LCI Los Angeles Area Community of Practice

Welcome to the homepage of the Los Angeles / Orange County Community of Practice. Our effort is focused on educating, training, and advancing Lean knowledge for the engineering, designing and construction of projects within southern California. We stress the importance of collaboration and integrated project delivery (with or without a contractual obligation) as well as fostering trust on project sites or within an office environment.

We host approximately seven events each year and actively search for joint event opportunities at which we can reach more members of the design and construction community. Over the past couple of years, we have averaged around 50 attendees at our events which creates an energetic and engaging learning environment. At the beginning of each event, we routinely encourage all attendees to ask questions and share their knowledge regardless of whether competitors may be in the room. All of us want to improve. . . all of us want to learn. . . all of us want to advance the industry.

Our diverse group of dedicated Core Group members include:

  • Shaun Sleeth (Leader), McCarthy Building Companies, Inc.
  • Julie Davis (Vice Leader), DPR Construction
  • Eric Ahlstrom, Amgen
  • Stan Chiu, HGA Architects
  • Dave Fabulich, Taft Electric
  • Jason Herrera, KHS&S Contractors
  • Tom McCready, BN Builders
  • Edwin Najarian, IMEG Corp
  • Michael St. Clair, Southland Industries
