Overview: Construction is becoming more competitive every day and many general contractors are turning to Lean Construction as a way to deliver quality projects on time and on budget – sometimes with varying degrees of success.  If you’ve even been part of one of these projects, maybe you were a bit frustrated by the process, had a hard time seeing how it could help you or weren’t given much guidance.  If Lean is new to you, now is the time to find out what it’s all about.  

In any case, this dynamic, informative and fun one-day workshop is an absolute must for all subcontractors and will help you understand what Lean Construction is, where subcontractors fit into the equation and how you can really make Lean work for you. 


  • History of Lean – how it applies to construction
  • Waste in Construction – learn to see hidden waste
  • Workflow – why smooth is way more important than fast
  • Last Planner System – what it is, how it helps projects (and subs) and how to use it

You’ll be able to start using Lean on your projects immediately and will quickly become a subcontractor of choice for Lean projects.

Who should attend: All members of a construction project team, including: Trade Company Owners,  Project Managers, Superintendents, Forepersons

Facilitator(s): James Johnston, P. Eng., CM-Lean, (Quality Dynamics Inc.)
