We constantly strive to keep our course offerings up to date and relevant to the industry, so we add new courses to our calendar several times a year! Our latest new workshop is Lean for Construction – A Practical Approach. We want to help you reduce costs, improve lead times, and foster collaboration by introducing key Lean concepts and how they can applied on a daily basis.
