The Lean Construction Institute (LCI) now has an Ohio Valley Chapter.

Headquartered in Ketchum, Idaho, the non-profit LCI is an association of construction professionals that researches the principles of lean production in the design, engineering, and construction trades.

The new chapter, spearheaded by David MacNeel, operations manager of Baker Concrete Construction, and Joseph Cleves, Jr., partner at Dressman Benzinger LaVelle (DBL) law firm, spans all of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. It joins existing chapters located throughout the United States and parts of Europe.

Representatives from Turner Construction and Proctor & Gamble will serve on the new chapter’s advisory board.
