2019 Project of the Year

Excerpt: By frontloading information-gathering tasks, Roger’s team took advantage of the wasted downtime during the consultant selection process as well as the negotiation process to locate materials needed by the consultants. This consequently sped up the consultant negotiation by identifying information gaps before the consultants started their work.

They moved the planning, permitting, community involvement and consultant negotiation steps to earlier in the process. They didn’t actually eliminate any steps but they collapsed waste and defects into a 2-month savings that will impact future projects. Creating key checklists and new Standard Work to drive the “in-house vs hire-a-consultant” decision helped them reach their goal.
