RIGHT FIRST TIME - Read’s LEAN weekly planning tool “Planned Activities Complete” (PAC) recorded a 93% success rate across the project. By combining LEAN project management tools, and driving a mid-term review of the Constraint Schedule, the Read site team effectively managed out foreseen risks well in advance of work activities, facilitating effective delivery and a “Right First Time” approach to quality.

LEAN CONSTRUCTION - Read worked closely with the client and design teams in order to minimise the disruption to teaching and examination by scheduling works appropriately. Read also provided a full-height partition along the length of the hall so that the college maintained as much use of the area as possible whilst the refurbishment and adjoining works were being undertaken.

DIVERSE CONSTRUCTION - Incorporating a mixture of modern and traditional construction materials and process, the scheme involved refurbishment, alteration and extension elements. By continuing existing established relatioships with local supply chain partners with a proven track record of successful delivery, Read's management team ensured the works were completed with minimal adverse impact on the College.
