LCI + AIA|LA Healthcare Committee Jointly Present: Lean Workshop: Proof of Concept

The Lean Construction Institute, Los Angeles, and AIA|LA Healthcare Committee are excited to host a joint event this June. Stan Chiu and Edwin Najarian will be presenting two case studies representing outstanding examples on Integrated Lean Project Delivery, and the tools and culture that drive performance.

Case Study #1: Sutter Medical Center Castro Valley

For the 1st time in the U.S., an 11-party IPD team including the Owner, all co-signed an Integrated Form of Agreement (IFOA) contract, requiring them to work collaboratively, extensively use 3D BIM technologies, and implement lean practice, in a shared risk, shared reward environment, to design and deliver this hospital project in California within a 30% accelerated schedule and aggressive budget targets. The project has completed successfully and won several awards for the innovation approach in design and project delivery.

Case Study #2: UHS Spring Valley Bed Tower

While all projects are faced with challenges and struggles, the return on investment has been proven for spending the capital and time on creating an environment focused on team health and synergy; therefore, driving a team to rise above the challenge and redirect their energy toward innovation, performance driven results and enhanced profit. – MYTH BUSTED.
