UCSF HAD TWO CHALLENGING PROJECTS RAMP UP IN 2006: CARDIOVASCULAR RESEARCH BUILDING AND REGENERATION MEDICINE BUILDING. MAJOR RESEARCH BUILDING PROJECT GOT STOPPED BY A CHALLENGING CONSTRUCTION COST ENVIRONMENT, MANY OF OUR MAJOR PROJECTS LANDED IN LITIGATION BEFORE COMPLETION, MAJOR TRADE SUBCONTRACTORS DIDN’T WANT OUR WORK. UCSF REALIZED THAT THIS HAD TO CHANGE. UCSF STARTED EXPERIMENTING WITH LEAN AND IPD PHILOSOPHIES. THEIR PROJECT CULTURE CHANGED FROM CONFRONTATION TO COLLABORATION. OTHER CHANGES HAVE OCCURRED THAT HAVE BENEFITED THE SCHOOL AND THE COMMUNITY.

OTHER UC SYSTEMS LIKE UCLA ARE STARTING TO MAKE SIMILAR CHANGES IN THEIR CAPITAL PROGRAMS. UCLA MADE CHANGES TWO YEARS AGO TO A BEST VALUE SELECTION. THEIR GROWING CAPITAL PROGRAM AND THEIR DELIVERY METHODS ARE THEIR START OF THEIR JOURNEY IN LEAN DELIVERY. PLEASE JOIN US TO LEARN WHERE UC SYSTEMS ARE HEADING IN THEIR LEAN EXPERIMENTATION.
