Hoffman implements Lean construction principles on every job to reduce waste and increase efficiency at every level of the project. Through collaborative Lean planning, we maximize off-site fabrication of critical project elements (such as structural steel and exterior panels). This reduces site congestion and improves site safety. Maximizing off-site fabrication also improves quality while lowering costs, and helps expedite the schedule.
Additional key components of Hoffman’s Lean approach include:
- All materials brought into a building are loaded on carts or dollies to allow for easy movement and organization
- Materials in the building are used within three work days
- Work activities are carried out to eliminate off-cuts, debris, and packaging
- Excess materials are immediately placed in wheeled and covered receptacles
