Ghafari makes lean tools and methods more accessible and achievable.
We collaborate with leaders around the world, tapping into our world-class expertise to incorporate lean IPD principles and BIM technologies into their capital project delivery systems and methods. Each time we streamline overall project workflows, we see the same effects throughout the design and construction processes: waste is reduced, time is saved, cost is minimized, and quality improves. In addition to helping clients harness new approaches, we also help them adopt new methodologies like the Last Planner System. Our goal is to build our clients’ confidence and competency in new methods and tools so they reach new levels of success.
Meet vPlanner After years of leading highly integrated projects, we built vPlanner to facilitate collaborative design and construction management. Today, teams use the software to quickly build and visualize complex networks of commitments, get immediate feedback on the status of project milestones, and make quick decisions during re-planning sessions.
