Abstract

Lean Construction (LC) aims at reducing waste, increasing productivity and health and safety in fulfilling the client's requirements of the construction industry. The desire to provide affordable housing, reduce construction waste and increase productivity has led to the adaptation of the “lean construction” concept. Assessing and implementing the techniques of the lean philosophy has become key for organizations in the industry of construction in the quest for incessant advancements. Lean construction is an approach to improve productivity and sustainability. It is a systematic method for creating buildings with optimal engineering, design, and environmental responsiveness. Lean construction assists contractors in managing risks and uncertainties in the production of residential buildings. In this project, we will discuss how the implementation of a lean construction method can ensure effectiveness on a residential building project. This project provides the fundamental knowledge of LC and highlighted its implementation in residential construction. The knowledge of stakeholders is significant because LC principles are widely used in the workplace. However, stakeholders do not yet understand the basic terms of LC, so they cannot reach their full potential. This project will implement various factors of lean construction in residential construction project to increase its efficiency and affordability. The implementation of LC will prove to benefit the construction industry by maximizing value and increasing sustainability.
