Last Planner® System Saves Money
Here are examples of real life projects completed under budget.
Lean is a means to save your company money. It is a strategy by which we avoid making tradeoffs in time, cost, and quality. But don’t just take our word for it. Here are examples of real life projects completed under budget.
|Project||Budgeted||Actual Cost||% Saved|
|Seattle Children’s Hospital||$110,000,000||$79,000,000||28|
|Orlando Chilled Water Plant||$6,000,000||$5,400,000||10|
|Toronto Office TI||$11,250,000||$10,530,000||6.4|
In addition to projects completed under budget, it is also possible to compare similar projects with different design systems. The projects below occurred at the same time, in the same city, with the same architect. The only difference is that the contractors used different delivery models.
These are the end results for two hospitals contracted by Universal Health Services.
