On February 28, 2019, GBCA hosted the Last Planner System Workshop. Led by Christian Pikel, Managing Principal and Senior Coach of The ReAlignment Group, this full-day workshop provided information, hands-on practical training, and simulations to help participants successfully start implementing the Last Planner® System at any phase of the building project with their project teams at their firms.
The Last Planner® System is one of the hallmark collaborative planning tools supporting lean design and construction.
On Saturday, March 2, 2019, the participants of the Carpenters Apprentice Ready Program (CARP) took the Carpenters’ Apprenticeship exam, and then went on a jobsite tour of Tutor Perini Building Corp’s W-Element Hotel in Center City, Philadelphia.
GBCA is looking for sponsors for the participants who enter apprenticeships. If your company can sponsor a CARP participant, contact Angela Hendrix at firstname.lastname@example.org.
