Geoff Pikaluk has been with Marquardt Mechanical for 19 years. Geoff has led numerous complex projects as a foreman including hospitals, school/university, residential towers, retail stores and light industrial environments. Geoff has numerous cycles of driving Lean tools and behaviours across “Non-Lean” projects. This includes 5S, standard work, visual management, pull planning, material kitting and prefabrication.
Geoff has earned his Lean Construction Greenbelt certificate at Marquardt Mechanical. This program aligns to the Lean Construction Institute of Canada’s Level 2 certification which requires at least 40 hours of in class training, Lean simulations, and applied Lean projects. Geoff also holds his interprovincial plumbing journeyman, steamfitter/pipefitter journeyman and gasfitter certificates.
13:00 — Building a Virtual Lean Culture at Marquardt Mechanical
Ville-Marie (9th floor)
This session will focus on how a contractor is utilizing Lean principles, tools, and technology to enable a lean culture across remote construction projects. This will include the successes, challenges, and failures to implement Lean as a small piece of a complex construction supply chain that is slow to adopt Lean. Learn from a mechanical contracting company’s journey to connect the everyday on-site construction standard work activities to the Big Picture strategic objectives.
