SureMountain implement lean construction practices in domestic, commercial and industrial projects.
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.
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.
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.
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.
SureMountain convey a shared principle approach with lean construction which includes the following:
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.
Project manage efficiently to reduce the other associated costs for the construction.
Lean construction has its principles grounded on a number of levels and scenarios:
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.
