Global Provider of Lean Process & Methods to the Construction Industry
The guiding principles of Lean have transformed every industry they touch. Lean removes waste from systems and processes, and that removes cost.
TrueNorth is so successful in applying these principles to homebuilding that we guarantee results in writing:
Our LeanBlitz programs are scaled to builders of 5 units to 1,500, starter home to high end luxury; there's one sure to fit your need.
+ 115 'Lean' Implementations
+ 2,500 Suppliers & Trades
= $200+ Million in Savings
Never look at your business the same again. Find out what Lean is all about.
If you struggle with cost and knew you had a few thousand dollars of waste designed-in to your product, would you want to ferret it out?
Let us show you where and how to begin.
TrueNorth has teamed up with Todd Hallett, principal at TK Design & Architecture, to launch a radical new approach to plan reviews. Use our 765 check points gleaned from Lean experience to improve bottom line performance by reducing your cost to build. Eliminate framing/plumbing conflicts, missed intersects, mis-sized rooms for drywall or flooring, and on, and on, and on...
These are not "dumbed down" houses; they are your plans, optimized.
We focus on design-induced waste present in virtually every house, as identified by your own suppliers and trades, and design it out with the help of our 765-point Lean Filter, devised with the input of over 1,700 supplier and trade contractors.
Nobody in this industry can match the input.
LeanPlan Workout™ pays for itself in the first few units built, and will generate additional profit with each unit built therefter.

Was a success!
Read what this attendant had to say:
…I definitely learned a lot. I have quite a bit of lean operations experience, but I am an “out of the industry” guy so it was great to see actual examples of lean techniques applied to building. Bravo on blazing the lean path for us all.
