Prof. Lauri Koskela is internationally known for his pioneering work in the field of construction management. The University of Huddersfield (where Prof. Koskela is currently based) recently organized “Koskelafest” to celebrate the life and work of Prof. Lauri Koskela and also to mark the 25th Anniversary of Lean Construction. The symposium where luminaries from the international lean community gathered, included speeches, workshops and unveiling of a special book on Lean Construction.
Dr. Bhargav Dave from VisiLean, who completed his PhD under Prof. Koskela’s supervision was invited to attend the event and give a speech on the subject of “Construction Management Systems at the Nexus of lean and BIM”. Dr. Dave will be co-authoring a chapter on the same topic with Prof. Rafael Sacks who is also on the advisory board of VisiLean.
The VisiLean team would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Prof. Koskela and thank him for his significant contributions to the field of Lean Construction. We at the VisiLean team are truly grateful and privileged to have Prof. Koskela on our advisory board.
