EGLC3 in Delft: 22-23 May 2006

The construction industry is notorious for its almost zero percent profit margins and enormous (up to 20%) failure rectification costs. Doing things right first time could reduce these failure costs to zero and contribute to better profit and product quality. Lean Construction is an attitude that creates value and reduces waste. EGLC, The European Group for Lean Construction, is a network of practitioners, consultants, academics and students in the construction industry that meet to share, listen, learn and debate strategies to develop and implement lean thinking in construction.

On Monday and Tuesday, May 22-23 EGLC met in Delft, the Netherlands, with sessions on theory, design, implementation, cases and a simulation game.

EGLC is an excellent networking opportunity. Inspire, and be inspired by, colleagues who are applying lean in day to day construction.
