Lean Construction

Blue Ocean has more than 3 decades of experience in lean transformation and change management for businesses and projects at a national and international level.

As capital projects become increasingly complex and dynamic, traditional approaches to management are not able to address the inherent challenges.

Our clients are gaining uncontested advantage by improving the delivery and management of capital assets. Working with owners, designers, operators, constructors, and suppliers across all construction industry sectors.

As a company that operates in a global capacity, when engaging with our clients our objectives are fundamentally the same – to add value and increase the reliability of delivering the project on time and within budget, safely.

From an initial workshop, into a demonstration project, through to hands on deployment and coaching, our skills are diverse and are geared to meet the expectations of our clients.

“In recent surveys of major projects, nine out of ten had cost overruns, cost overruns of 50 to 100 percent were common, and overruns above 100 percent were not uncommon”

“Design by Deception: The Politics of Megaproject Approval”, Bent Flyvbjerg, Harvard Design Magazine, no. 22, pp. 50-59, 2005

“Between 40 and 50 percent of all construction projects are running behind schedule… same as previous years”

Construction Management Association of America (CMAA), “6th Annual Survey of Construction Owners”, 2005

“1/3 of every dollar spent on construction is wasted”

Construction Users Roundtable (CURT) study, 2000

Our knowledge on project delivery can be applied to all projects facets within the industry. We work across all construction phases including: Project Definition; Design; Supply; Assembly; and Use / Decommission.

What we offer our clients:

If you were asked to make improvements of up to 50% on quality, cost and delivery ......Could you?
