    Lean Construction Superintendent Steve Turner

    Lean Construction Superintendent Steve Turner

    Steve Turner is more than a Superintendent. He steps towards different challenges and opportunities with tact and grace. He is also the Lean Champion for FPI Builders. Join this inspiring dialogue about Steve’s experiences with Lean Construction principles and methods. No surprise, we are mutual friends with Joe Donarumo and Keyan Zandy. Steve even shares how he came to adopt Daily Huddles for meaningful trade partner involvement. We dove into technology including digital Last Planner System® using iPads in the field, BIM360, and RefinemySite. Find out why Steve says the days of running back to the job trailer to look at a set of paper plans or a schedule on the wall have come to an end.
