Lean Construction Education Program

May 2018 | Ames, IA

Become a Lean Construction Champion

Everyone related to the construction process has incentive to get the project done faster and at a lower cost - from the project owners who want to see tangible results for their investment to the contractors and designers who want to do their job well and move on to the next project. Lean Construction is based on the holistic pursuit of continuous improvements aimed at minimizing costs and maximizing value on a construction project: planning, design, construction, activation, operations, maintenance, salvaging, and recycling.

The AGC Lean Construction Education Program (LCEP) is the curriculum available to help you reach these goals. The LCEP consists of seven units that instruct all aspects of Lean, allowing practitioners to benefit from these principles. Construction professionals at all experience levels will learn the building blocks necessary to transform their projects and companies into a Lean operating system. In addition, this course provides tools to help participants recognize sources of variation on their own projects, examine variation’s effect on operations, and mitigate the effects of variation in their every-day work.

To help contractors develop the knowledge needed to build lean, Master Builders of Iowa is offering the Associated General Contractors of America Lean Construction Education Program. Construction professionals at all experience levels, will learn the building blocks necessary to transform their projects and companies into a lean operating system.
