Faced with consistently poor labor productivity many large construction companies embraced Lean hoping to reverse that trend.
Many large construction companies in the early 2000s embraced Lean as a project delivery approach hoping to reverse productivity rates hovering around 40% in our industry. Many of those same companies lost millions of dollars through poor execution, inconsistent application and lack of commitment to doing Lean the right way.
We saw an opportunity. In 2018, after nearly 2 years of study, refinement and a methodical re-introduction of the practice, Lean2.0® was born — a new term coined and branded by Flintco to describe our approach to Lean. By working the margins, we are gaining incremental efficiencies at every step of the design and construction process. We now have unequivocal data that validates our simple premise: When done right, Lean works to bring more certainty around every critical aspect of your project.
Flintco takes Lean to the next level.
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.
