ConsensusDocs has just released the first industry standard document tailored to incorporate Lean Practices to specifically work in the design-build project delivery method. Lean practices improve value, efficiency, and relationships in the design and construction industry. Design-build is an alternative project delivery method that has grown in popularity that offers integrated design and construction services, but industry forms have not explicitly incorporated lean practices contractually. Rather than rely upon cultural aspirations that can backslide, learn how you can leverage the just released ConsensusDocs 431 Design-Build Addendum to memorialize Lean practices in your next design-build project. This will allow you to get many of the benefits offered by Lean without requiring an integrated project delivery (IPD) contract. Getting your contracts right to encourage Lean is difficult. Now there is an industry contract standard form to help.

 Learning Objectives 

  • Gain an overview of the ConsensusDocs 431 Lean Design-Build Addendum and 305 Lean Construction Addendum
  • Learn Lean project fundamentals that you can incorporate in your project’s contracts
  • Understand how using an IPD contract like the ConsensusDocs 300 is not required to get many of the benefits of the Lean practices.
