For over 20 years, Bowen Engineering has applied the principles of Lean Construction through our execution process known as Bowen SQP (Safe, Quality, Production).
Bowen SQP is focused on planning/executing/debriefing your construction work activities to minimize waste and cost, and maximize effectiveness and efficiency. Bowen’s lean principles are founded on collaboration of all stakeholders which begins in pre-construction and continues throughout all phases of your project.
Bowen SQP focuses on methods to pull labor off your job (ex. prefab and modularize), eliminate waste of craft labor, construction materials and heavy equipment by identifying the necessary tools, information, materials, manpower, equipment, material staging, etc. while simultaneously planning for safety, quality and production. Bowen SQP processes are taught in-house at Bowen to our own, and subcontractor partners, personnel to ensure that we create collaborative environments where all stakeholders are involved as early as possible to ensure the best possible project outcome on your project.
Our lean project experience result in improvements with communication, scope definition, cost and schedule performance as well as in the relationships between the client, designer, and Bowen. Bowen uses detailed operation plans, dedicated planning trailers, lists to review hot topics, weekly work plans, workable backlog, daily huddles and end of shift meetings as Lean tools.
Bowen adds value and predictability to your project by continually searching for ways to improve, remove waste, and maximize efficiency.
Bowen's Unique Storyboarding Process assures that we have considered all facets of every step of the project ahead. Together we will work to predict where issues and interruptions may arise to assure your project is completed on time, on budget and to your specifications.
SQP can be adapted to any project, large or small. SQP is a cyclical process repeated through the duration of a project. (click to enlarge)
