Do the Math: Lean Coordination Delivers the ROI

Posted by Don Henrich on Apr 29, 2012 3:27:00 AM


We first started introducing our Coordination Resolution process back in June of 2010 – just as the economy was bouncing along the bottom of the trough.  Two years later, I'd like to encourage you to investigate this process again.  Why?  It is still paying huge dividends on projects. 


Let me tell you about a few key figures… 


The cost of this Lean Construction approach to Coordination is averaging less than 0.185% of the cost of the construction project.  And it includes providing high quality fabrication information and 2D installation drawings, as well as fully-documented 6D (Facilities Management) model.


If the total cost of your subs fees for coordination exceed 0.15% of the project, you are missing out on an opportunity to increase your profit per project. 


For the past four years, Team Vico has been working on a better way to perform coordination.  Don't get me wrong, using 3D models and a clash detection system as many firms are doing today is a huge improvement over the 2D-centric coordination process of the past.  But, based on work with Healthcare and other customers, we have pioneered a process that has shown an average of a 40% reduction in overall coordination time and a huge reduction in coordination expense. 


We have some great resources to help you better understand the process:
