Lean Expertise

Mortenson Center for Lean Innovation
For over a decade, we've been actively defining how to effectively apply Lean Construction principles to our industry. We have learned that the most effective way to solve problems and add value is through the combination of the great innovation provided by our team members and partners, and the application of effective tools, processes and techniques.


Our Culture of Lean Innovation

Mortenson Lean Innovation

Our Lean Innovation journey involves every team member inside our organization and on our projects to help improve our processes, seek ways to drive efficiencies in the way we build, and enhance the value of the structures and facilities we create. This journey challenges Mortenson team members to utilize their entrepreneurial skills and innovation to support our mission to create an exceptional customer experience.

By operating in the most efficient and simple manner possible, we will:
1. Improve our customer’s business and the product we build,
2. Improve project execution, and
3. Improve our processes and team member experience.

We welcome and encourage ideas from all levels on our projects, as part of our journey to lead the industry in lean innovation.
