Lean Construction

SureMountain deliver lean construction services, which combines expert operational research and practical development in design and construction with an adaption of lean manufacturing principles.

Lean Construction Sectors

SureMountain implement lean construction practices in domestic, commercial and industrial projects.







Continuous Improvement

SureMountain lean construction is concerned with the alignment and holistic pursuit of concurrent and continuous improvements in design, construction, activation, maintenance, salvaging and recycling. Lean construction is very much about managing and improving construction processes, while reducing costs and maximising value.







Maximum Value

SureMountain aim to generate the maximum possible amount of value for our clients by minimising material waste, time and effort. To achieve such results SureMountain undertake a collaborative approach with all project participants through every stage of the project. This service process goes beyond the contractual arrangement of design/build or constructability. We don’t merely react to designs, instead we inform and influence the design.


To achieve the correct workflow with reliability and predictably the construction site requires the alignment of the supply chain, so that value is maximized and waste is minimised. This broad scope of activities is very similar to the lean production, as practiced by Toyota and other car manufacturers.


Lean Construction Evolution

SureMountain use the key principles of TQM, SPC, six-sigma and more to evolve our lean construction solutions. Similarly, methods associated with social science and business are used to enhance the procedural nature of lean construction.


The three unique tools and methods that are critical with a SureMountain lean construction solution are the Last Planner System, Target Value Design and the Lean Project Delivery System.

Service Delivery

Our service delivery system ensures that the design and planning of your solution is of the highest industry standards, meeting both regulatory requirements and client specific needs.


Shared Principles

SureMountain convey a shared principle approach with lean construction which includes the following:


  • Identifying value from the point of view of the customer.
  • Collaboration and systematic learning with whole system optimisation.
  • Pursuit of perfection involving everyone in the system so that continual improvement is developed.
  • Delivering the value required by the client.
  • Eliminating obstacles to value creation and allowing value to flow by systematically.
  • Remove elements that create no value to maximize the outcomes.
  • Achieving flow within work processes as waste is removed.
  • Nothing is made/delivered until it is needed.
  • Improvement needs to be constantly sought.


Project Based Production

A recognition that construction is a project based production where the product is generally a prototype. Thus, a focus on effective quality systems, maximises the outcomes.


Our priority for all construction work is to do as follows:


Keep work flowing so that the crews are always productive when installing solutions.



Reduce the inventory, materials and tools required to complete the construction.


Other Costs

Project manage efficiently to reduce the other associated costs for the construction.


 Levels & Scenarios

Lean construction has its principles grounded on a number of levels and scenarios:


  • Individual design recognises clients to be both the owner of the buildings and those downstream process.
  • Individual component suppliers who deliver value. e.g. bricks, concrete etc.
  • A PFI organisation who provide value to different clients through the provision and operation of a building product. e.g. a hospital or a prison.
  • A group of companies who provide value through the provision of a building product. e.g. city office space.

Looking Inward

We look inward to our own organisation, processes and people, to scrutinise the value opportunities and existing work processes to remove waste.


Adopting a lean thinking philosophy results in a highly flexible organization that understands and reacts to the detailed requirements of clients.
