Sheahan & Collins Construction: Lean Initiative

The initiative for Lean was two-fold. Firstly, as a young company, the opportunity presented itself to ‘start as we intend to go on’ and commence the company’s Lean journey during the company’s infancy, building systems with Lean Construction in mind and incorporating Lean methods into our management systems. Secondly, during the early stages of the Dublin City project which is the focus of this case study, the need to apply a different approach to project delivery was recognised in order to successfully hand over the project to the client ahead of the new academic year in September 2018.
