Lean principles provide improvement to the efficiency of construction by synchronizing the process of building and eliminating waste, which in turn can have a positive impact on the environment. This is generating a growing interest in linking the relationship between lean and low carbon. The authors compare the carbon emission in the truss construction process of a steel structured building in China optimized by lean principles with the original process. A partial life cycle assessment (LCA… CONTINUE READING
