The International Group for Lean Construction (IGLC), founded in 1993, makes up a network of professionals and researchers in architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) who feel that the practice, education, and research of AEC have to be radically renewed in order to respond to the challenges ahead. We call our vision: Lean Construction. Our goal is to better meet customer demands and dramatically improve the AEC process as well as product. To achieve this, we are developing new principles and methods for product development and production management specifically tailored to the AEC industry, but akin to those defining Lean production that proved to be so successful in manufacturing. The annual IGLC international conference has grown over the years into the premier event for both researchers and practitioners, industry and academia. This year marks the 26th Anniversary of the conference series, and we hope to celebrate this remarkable experience in the highly vibrant city of Chennai in the background of Incredible India.
