Lean Design and Construction

To achieve the aggressive target schedule, we implement the following lean initiatives:

  • Modularization and plugand-play solutions
  • Use off-the-shelf equipment
  • Facility Simplification
  • Off-site fabrication
  • Standard construction design details

Building Information Modelling (BIM)

Lendlease uses BIM as the design platform to generate all design & fabrication documents from frond end engineering to shop drawing development at construction phase.

  • Improving visualization
  • Improving coordination
  • Reducing design risk
  • Increasing understanding
  • Reducing shop drawing duration
  • Reducing rework and wasted time
  • Reducing wasted material
  • Improving construction quality
  • Improving collaborating between LL, GC and subcontractors
