Okanagan Trades Center Project “A Second Living Building Challenge Project”
“As leaders in the community it is our duty to protect the planet and demonstrate that triple bottom-line economics work. For our second Living Building Challenge project our team adopted Lean Project Delivery to raise the bar even higher as we wanted to demonstrate that we can deliver high perform building deliver at less cost in less time.” Kathleen Lausman
On our last project it took nearly a year of working to achieve Net 0 energy performance, for this project we adopted a lean commissioning approach (LeanCx) and are planning to be fully commissioned at substantial completion. We also are working hard to develop discipline with full implementation of the Last Planner System, make the best decisions with Choosing by Advantages (CBA) and have a Study Action Team (SAT) to help build a lean culture for Okanagan College and the Project Team.
