Evidence-Based Design is the process of basing decisions about the built environment using credible research to achieve the best outcomes.

Lean focuses on defining value, eliminating waste and continuous improvement.

Have you wondered whether Lean and Evidence-Based Design can be part of the same project? Pairing Lean and Evidence-Based Design during the design and construction of a project can transform the built environment and user experiences. Learn how designers, owners, and builders can maximize this potential by integrating these value-based approaches in all phases of a project.

This interactive workshop will illustrate how Lean methods can be informed, complemented, and enhanced by an EBD process that uses research findings, data collection and analysis. Maximizing value to the customer, eliminating waste, and continuous improvement are at the core of Lean, while improving safety and quality is at the core of evidence-based design. To address today’s issues, you shouldn’t do one without the other. During this workshop you will have the opportunity to engage with colleagues and a coach to simulate this integration. You will leave with tools and resources that can be applied on your next project.
