Lean Construction: A Bright Future for Public Projects

750 delegates, 36 speakers, 50 solution suppliers. This is what you can expect at Ireland’s inaugural Lean Construction Ireland National Conference.

Lean is a concept that recognises the waste produced by all products and services, aiming to minimise that waste and maximise the productivity. Lean construction is a response to customer and supply chain dissatisfaction with the results in the building industry. According to Lean Construction Institute (LCI) 70% of projects are over budget and delivered late.

Lean Construction Ireland is a voluntary not-for-profit association leading lean practices and thinking. Delivering better projects, at a faster pace, together is the organisations vision, and they plan on showcasing the wealth of Lean Construction at the National Conference on November 20th.

The conference will deal with 8 streams of Lean Construction; ranging from challenges and opportunities with contracts, to applying lean construction to public enterprises. With big sponsors like Ardmac and Sisk Group, to name a few, and keynote speakers like Christine Pasquire, Director of Lean Construction UK, and Denis McCarthy, Director of BAM, the inaugural conference is something to look forward to this year.

The Lean Construction Ireland National Conference takes place on November 20th of this year, and will be held in Croke Park. Tickets cost €95 and can be purchased online at Eventbrite.
