Lean Construction Education Program: AGC LCEP Unit 6

The Lean Construction Institute of Canada (LCI-C) is dedicated to transforming the building industry in Canada by changing how projects are planned, designed, managed, and constructed, in all forms of project delivery. Lean principles, when utilized in construction, can help deliver projects more efficiently, while enhancing productivity, and improving profitability throughout the construction project. Lean Construction has demonstrated its ability to minimize costs and maximize value for all project participants.

To help the Canadian building industry learn more about Lean construction, and to foster a new culture of continuous improvement in the planning, design and construction industry, LCI-C is pleased to offer The Lean Construction Education Program, developed by the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC).

This 7-Unit program will provide professionals at all levels and from all industry sectors with the ability and skills to implement Lean, and transform the way their firms do business.
