About the topic – Lean Construction – Making the Difference at Suir Engineering

Like all sectors, Construction has its own set of specific challenges to be faced. Some examples of these include project delays, shortage of skilled workers, increasingly complex projects, and a confrontational culture and contract models that foster transactional and adversarial relationships. In this environment, good communication and a focus on continuous improvement are both critically important. Lean Construction thinking and practices provide the Construction sector with the perfect methodology to help free itself from many of its daily challenges and frustrations. With our MD as the lead advocate, Suir Engineering has been on its Lean journey for five years and has made substantial progress based on the MD’s absolute commitment to deploying Lean theory, tools, and techniques. In this Seminar we will talk you through some of the changes we have made, some of the difficulties we have encountered, and some of the many positive outcomes we have garnered as a result of our investment.
