The process to build with high quality, a low cost and a fast pace starts with our ability to apply Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) principles from the start of the project – creating shared risks and shared rewards. From early on, we work closely with the architect and prime contractors in order to reduce waste and optimize efficiency. It’s made possible through the combined talent and knowledge that each party brings to the table.
This approach works because the project is designed and managed collaboratively. Lean Construction practices allow us to discuss constructability issues, types and availability of materials, value analysis, life-cycle costs, ergonomics, budget and availability of building trades in a timely manner. This valuable collaboration keeps the project flowing.
The IPD/Lean Construction approach provides numerous project benefits throughout the entire design and construction process:
- Reduces the preconstruction timeline (a more focused design effort)
- Maximizes the budget (best value)
- Ensures the final design meets budget expectations (no surprises)
- Reduces changes during the construction process
- Promotes teamwork
- Expedites final project completion
Bottom line, Wohlsen’s Lean Construction approach provides the client with a higher quality building, completed in the quickest timeline, for the best value.
