Lean Construction

Innovating, eliminating waste and continuously streamlining processes

The object of lean construction is to keep the design and construction team working on well-defined deliverables at a predictable pace and to eliminate re-work and down-time. Lean principles also emphasize innovation and elimination of waste in all forms and streamlining workflows continually throughout the project. As with design-build projects, teamwork is formalized at the earliest conceptualization phases. MATT clients experience heightened levels of efficiency, healthy design team and trade contractor relationships, clear communication, and reliable attainment of cost and schedule.

In the lean process, MATT takes full advantage of 3D and 4D modeling to work out site logistics, sequence construction, model the owner’s process flows, and discover conflicts in design documents, shop drawings, and coordination drawings.
