Title: How Lean Construction is Different - Eliminating Waste and Challenging the Traditions of Building Information Modeling
Please join Ed Thompson from Cherry City Electric and Amy Clements from JE Dunn Construction for a presentation and discussion of how Lean Construction techniques challenge the norms of traditional construction to increase efficiencies. An overview of Lean Construction and a case study focusing on the use of BIM will be discussed.
