Art Winslow, Graham Construction
With more than 30 years of construction industry experience, Art Winslow was selected to lead Graham Construction’s Lean IPD journey. Graham Construction, who has offices across North America, has embarked on a companywide transformation into creating a Lean culture of continuous improvement in all its offices.
Art is proud to have been the Project Director for Canada’s first and largest Lean Integrated Project Delivery(IPD) project, the Moose Jaw Hospital. More recently, Art oversaw the successful completion of Canada’s first post-secondary project using the IPD model at St. Jerome’s University in Waterloo, Ontario. Currently, he is a Lean facilitator on several Lean and IPD projects across Canada.
In his 8 year Lean journey, Art’s name has become synonymous with Lean and the IPD project delivery across Canada. As a result, he has consulted with a variety of Canadian and Provincial Governments, Infrastructure groups and NGOs. As a certified Lean construction instructor, he teaches Lean and has presented at industry-related conferences across North America. Art sits on several Lean IPD boards including the Lean Construction Institute (Canada) and the CCDC task force that created the new CCDC 30 (Canadian Standard IPD Agreement).
As one of Canada’s few certified Lean construction instructors, Art’s schedule is full these days and while he is very busy, he will always make time to “pay it forward”, to those who are interested in understanding Lean and the IPD contract model.
