Lean Construction Instutite - Lean Design Forum

Lean Construction Institute

Lean Design Forum

Berkeley , CA



The Lean Design Forum of LCI was formed to:

  • Develop evidence for the benefits of investing in design; benefits for customers, designers and all stakeholders, including society.
  • Develop means for executing design to increase return on investment.
  • Promote beneficial practices in the construction industry. LCI's role in the Design Forum is to: · Collect and analyze data from experiments. · Serve as benchmarking center.
  • Promote changes in industry practice.

The investigation will focus on that part of a project between the big phases of a construction project: Plan-Design-Build. The handoffs between these phases limit Design to whatever takes place in and between schematic design and the production of fabrication and installation instructions. The Forum will also include in its scope the Project Definition part of Planning--where project feasibility is assessed and objectives are set.
