Leaning into continuous improvement
Most construction managers and owners know that incorporating Lean construction principles has numerous tangible benefits, including reducing waste, improving safety and increasing overall quality. According to some studies, Lean construction projects are three times more likely to be completed earlier and two times more likely to be delivered under budget. Granger has fully embraced a culture of Lean Construction, seeing the benefits on projects of maximized efficiency and productivity.
