LCI Members discuss the Growth of Lean Construction in Ireland - Kyron

Irish building magazine spoke to Richard Fitzpatrick of the National Paediatric Hospital Development Board to get a client's perspective and Gary Widger of Mercury Engineering to hear from the supply side about the progress of Lean in Ireland.
Irish building magazine spoke to Richard Fitzpatrick and Gary Widger and questioned them about the growth of Lean Construction in Ireland, what it offers stakeholders and what can be done to further implement Lean. Gary Widger, Mercury Engineering: Gary Widger, Head of Innovation & Change has a proven track record in the design and delivery of innovative business transformations that add value across large companies in Europe, Asia and US. He holds a first class Mechanical Engineering Degree, MBA, and Diploma in Strategy, Innovation & Change from Smurfit Business School. He is a member of the LCI Leadership Group representing Mercury Engineering, Ireland's largest M&E Engineering services provider. Knowledge in Lean is growing in Ireland and this is evident when speaking to the professional organisations and industry experts. Gary said, "The level of knowledge on Lean is growing across the industry every day. t is now common for people to understand core concepts such as the 7 Wastes, Value, DMAIC, Last Planner and 5S. he LCI would like our level to go deeper and wider, but overall we are heading in the right direction." Gary told us what he thinks has stimulated the growth in the interest in Lean Construction in Ireland. "Construction clients from the pharmaceutical, life science and hi-tech manufacturing sectors are playing a key role. As Lean has already been adopted and delivered gains they view it as a prerequisite that their supply chain partners are equally adept." There are many older Lean Construction communities around the world who can influence our Lean philosophy and practices. Gary said, "A good way to get an insight into how Lean has been adopted globally is to follow the pattern of LCI communities in different regions. The US led the way almost 20 years ago, followed by the UK in 2006. Since 2010 the Nordics, Germany, Australia and Ireland have all initiated their LCI communities." Lean can offer the Irish Construction Industry and its Clients a structured approach to reduce waste and improve value delivered. "Lean offers a universal language for continuous improvement", Gary said. We asked if clients are asking for Lean in Ireland. "Some clients are demanding Lean through the Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) contracts that are structured to share gains from collaboration between partners." Gary said "A belief that projects can be delivered in a better way" is what is needed to implement Lean in Ireland". He spoke of the challenges and what is needed to overcome them: "We need the free and continuous education of our workforce similar to what was delivered for Safety and Quality."
