Lean Construction

The construction management research group focuses on optimization of construction processes. Construction is seen as a complex production system consisting of technical, human and process related subparts. Our knowledge is applied to optimize construction in terms of cost, lead time, quality and sustainability. Our main target and challenges is to create new knowledge, methods and tools within energy efficient construction management.

Core competencies are:

  • Lean Construction
  • Energy efficient Construction Management
  • Planning and scheduling of complex and constrained construction projects
  • Value creation and innovation in construction processes
  • The client’s brief

The research group advances the research in cooperation with industrial partners as well as national and international research partners. Also the research group is in charge of the MSc program in Construction Management.
