Last Planner® System Saves Money

2nd LPS 5 steps

Lean is a means to save your company money. It is a strategy by which we avoid making tradeoffs in time, cost, and quality. But don’t just take our word for it. Here are examples of real life projects completed under budget.

Project Budgeted Actual Cost % Saved
Seattle Children's Hospital $110,000,000 $79,000,000 28
Orlando Chilled Water Plant $6,000,000 $5,400,000 10
Toronto Office TI $11,250,000 $10,530,000 6.4


In addition to projects completed under budget, it is also possible to compare similar projects with different design systems. The projects below occurred at the same time, in the same city, with the same architect. The only difference is that the contractors used different delivery models.

These are the end results for two hospitals contracted by Universal Health Services.


  Traditional Build Lean Build
Beds 54 60
Bid Amount $8,828,677 $8,206,072
Change Requests 30 3
Change Order Costs $677,758 -$36,181
Final Cost $9,500,000 $8,169,891
