Bridges to Prosperity


 

Test Column #1

Calling it Lean2.0® represents our quest for continuous improvement, a hallmark of Lean and The Flintco Ethos. The Lean2.0® mark is suggestive of a 4-story building and represents the Plan-Do-Check-Adjust cycle that is fundamental to Lean; it also represents the familiar sticky notes associated with collaborative planning and the Last Planner® System that reflect our commitment to the Lean value of respect for people. The accent color takes a cue from the Flintco 4 LIFE logo. The tagline Better Construction means working the margins to gain incremental efficiencies at every step, providing more value to owners and is consistent with our company Vision Statement: Unwavering pursuit of the perfect construction experience.

The inspiration for Bridges to Prosperity (B2P) came in the form of a picture in National Geographic. The image here is of the nearly 400-year-old Sebara Dildiy — which means "broken bridge" in Amharic, Ethiopia's national language — along the Blue Nile river. The bridge’s center span had been missing for decades when the founders of B2P saw the image in 2001 and decided to do something about it.
