National Lean Manager, PCL Construction Enerprises, Inc.
Eric Lusis has over 22 years of construction experience with an emphasis on scheduling, closeout, and Lean design & construction practices. His responsibilities include the implementation and management of quality, scheduling, and Lean design & construction initiatives throughout PCL operations in the U.S. and Canada. He has played an intricate role in developing and implementing PCL’s last planner system (LPS) for design and construction.
While Eric wears many hats, he specializes in working with project teams to identify and develop solutions for project inefficiencies using Lean techniques such as root cause analysis, rapid improvement events, value stream mapping and LPS. Eric was on PCL’s first project to heavily utilize the LPS and was pulled out of operations three years ago to focus on operations support with PCL’s quality and Lean initiatives.
