Welty’s approach to Lean Construction actively balances the need to maximize value and minimize waste with the specific techniques required for the project. Lean techniques streamline the construction process and change the way work is done to deliver efficiency and value for the owner. As a result:

  • The facility and its delivery process are designed together to better reveal and support customer purposes
  • Work is structured throughout the process to maximize value and to reduce waste at the project delivery level
  • Improvement of the total project’s performance is valued more than simply reducing costs or increasing the speed of any particular activity
  • “Control” is redefined from “monitoring results” to “making things happen.” The performance of the planning and control systems are measured and improved

Lean Design and Construction offers two main advantages over traditional construction:

  1. Reduced Waste: We have reduced waste in the design and construction process by up to as much as 20%
  2. Increased Reliability of Planning: Plan work reliably and effectively by removing the unpredictability of the workflow

Welty’s proven process includes the following Lean tools:

  • Early planning and sequencing to improve workflow
  • Look ahead scheduling
  • Pre-fabrication to reduce activity on site
  • Just-in-time deliveries
  • Integrating the supply chain through partnering
  • Critical path analysis

Welty is an industry leader in Lean Design and Construction. Lean has both transformed our own organization and empowered us to maximize the value we provide our owner partners by continuously improving processes to eliminate waste.
