LEAN Manufacturing vs. Construction

  • Plant Room

Project Details

Challenge
Plant Rooms are the heart of a modern building, pumping hot & cold water, controlling the flow of air and the cooling & refrigeration to name a few functions. Yet but despite the critical role is plays in the infrastructure of our buildings the innovation of plant rooms has been poor.

Approach
Our team designed & developed a new approach utilising Lean manufacturing techniques normally seen in high volume factories, to raise the quality standards while achieving economies in costs & delivery

Results
A range of modular plant rooms, designed using the latest technology were manufactured away from the construction site with the following benefits achieved;

  • 40% reduction in delivery costs
  • 50% reduction in delivery time
  • 80% improvement in quality
  • Total Control of material usage
  • 35% Reduction in incidents, due to the controlled environment
  • 50% Lower Emissions
