The most important elements of any construction project are time, cost and quality. Often, one of those three will get deprioritized or outright dismissed by way of stakeholder priorities. If a project needs to be done quickly and with high quality, it won’t be cheap; if it needs to be done on a limited budget and finish fast, its quality will suffer. Lean construction is an approach that aims to optimize these necessary trade-offs while reducing the time, effort, materials and money that are necessary for projects. In simpler terms, lean construction aims to maximize customer value while minimizing resource waste.

A lean management style looks at all parts of a project from design through delivery and utilizes the skills of carefully selected employees to help reach clearly stated delivery goals and minimize waste. A lean construction job finishes quickly and with reduced labor costs while still maintaining high product quality and efficient, safe work practices.
