Recent Endorsements of Last Planner

"Last Planner has made a huge impact and the results speak for themselves." 

When you came in and ran the initial workshop the project was running six weeks behind programme due to consent delays and inclement weather hindering progress.  We managed to pull back four of the six weeks and finish Stage One two weeks behind programme. A huge achievement!   We have had great buy in from all our sub-contractors and your presentation in that initial workshop was perfectly pitched to get everyone's participation.  After the workshop we found your visits to site over the next three weeks were invaluable too. Working with the site team to implement the processes, and generally supporting them in the practical rollout of Last Planner helped immensely and has given them the vision that things can always be done better."  Craig Davison, CM StanleyGroup

 

"The increased communication that stems from this method can also lead to better understanding and relationships across the project.  I see great potential for this to be used in a myriad of complex situations, not just on construction sites." 

"Last Planner is great.  It seems similar to good construction practices but gets much better results through a few simple but fundamental tweaks.  The forethought that goes into the short-term planning not only helps with the programme but also health, safety and quality whilst measuring your performance and reasons for not achieving planned activities helps you to improve through the life of the project rather than wait for the next one.  Hannah Hyde, NZTA

 

“Our Hunua 4 project has embraced last planner and is producing great results in a very challenging and evolving project environment.” Andy Spittal, Watercare

“Last Planner has been an outstanding help in bringing our project in on time” Fulton Hogan, Auckland

 “We would not have delivered this project nor made our margin without Last Planner” Higgins, Wellington

“The Last Planner tool works. This tool produces results by including and communicating to all levels & designations of construction delivery and operations. Highly recommended.”  

"Amanda Warren and her Constructing Excellence training has challenged our culture of thinking with programming and critical path management. Amanda delivers course material that is relevant and interesting with a practical interactive content that demands attendees buy-in, all our staff enjoyed the training sessions thanks to her factual and fun structure."

RE: REMEDIATION PROJECT AT OCEAN SHORES RETIREMENT VILLAGE

"I thought it was timely to update you on progress now that we have completed Stage One of the project.  Last Planner has made a huge impact and the results speak for themselves.  When you came in and ran the initial workshop the project was running six weeks behind programme due to consent delays and inclement weather hindering progress.

We managed to pull back four of the six weeks and finish Stage One two weeks behind programme. A huge achievement!  We have had great buy in from all our sub-contractors and your presentation in that initial workshop was perfectly pitched to get everyone's participation.  After the workshop we found your visits to site over the next three weeks were invaluable too.  Working with the site team to implement the processes, and generally supporting them in the practical rollout of Last Planner helped immensely and has given them the vision that things can always be done better.

The second stage of the project is now underway and Last Planner is well bedded in now so we plan to pick up the other two weeks, and gain another two weeks to finish this stage early for re-occupation by the client just prior to Christmas.  From my experience with Last Planner so far I would highly recommend the process for all complex tight timeframe projects - from the outset ideally for the best results."
