BOSTON, MA – On Monday, company leaders from Consigli Construction Co., Inc. will participate in the 24th Annual Conference of the International Group for Lean Construction (IGLC) in downtown Boston. The conference focuses on advances in Lean design and construction throughout New England and across the country.
Applied to project design and delivery, Lean practices aim to maximize value and minimize waste and have changed the way work is done throughout a project’s lifespan in the industry.
Consigli Construction CEO Anthony Consigli will participate in a panel titled “A Commitment to Lean and What It’s Doing for Clients and Companies.” Joining the panel to discuss their firms’ applications of Lean project delivery and how it benefits clients and corporate initiatives alike include leaders from J.C. Cannistraro and TRO Boston.
Other speakers from Consigli include Superintendent Matt Guimond and Director of Lean Strategy Cynthia C.Y. Tsao, Ph.D.
Guimond will lead a project site tour of the Schumann Library at the Wentworth Institute of Technology to show the Lean practices that propel this complex academic renovation forward. Dr. Tsao will show the international perspective on Lean and kick off the IGLC’s three-day conference focused on the latest research results in Lean design and construction.
Founded in 1993, the IGLC is an international network of researchers from practice and academia in architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) who feel that the practice, education and research of the industry have to be radically renewed in order to respond to the global challenges ahead.
