Lean Construction

Publication Date: October 2017

Anyone who has hired a general contractor knows that you don’t always get what you pay for. Oftentimes, what you get is missed completion dates, unplanned expenses, and less-than-quality results. This is just the nature of the construction industry―except Charlie Garbutt, head of Garbutt Construction, says it doesn’t have to be.

In Lean Construction: A Small Contractor’s Journey, Charlie Garbutt shares the journey―and ultimate successes―that his company experienced by adopting Lean construction methods, and how that success can become your success.

By embracing the Lean culture, Garbutt Construction is able to eliminate waste, save time, increase production, and improve the quality of its projects.

What does that mean for you?

  • You save money
  • You receive the results sooner
  • You get the quality that you deserve

The Lean method is tested and true―just as much in construction as in manufacturing―and by adopting these concepts, Garbutt Construction is making a commitment to its clients―to you.

With decades of experience on record, Garbutt Construction has proven that its story is a story of success. It’s time to make that success your success.
