JBH Superintendent Troy Korkosz teaches the “Securing our Future Through Lean Construction” course at Local Union 469, a class focused on teaching pipefitters to identify and mitigate activities that do not directly support streamlined installations. A key partnership promoting lean construction is with suppliers. Through communication of project goals and creative collaboration, contractors can enlist their suppliers to instill lean construction practices before the material even hits the jobsite as described in this video produced by Swagelok:
In November 2016, at the invitation of a long-time client, JBH mobilized to Sparks, NV 1,018 miles from the Corporate Office in Albuquerque, NM. In true JBH project character, the customer is confidential and the work is moving rapidly. After years of practice making strategic moves throughout the country supporting our customers, JBH was able to mobilize and began installing immediately. To support the effort, JBH’s Albuquerque pipe fabrication facility is assembling 2″-8″ PVC, creating 40′ sections that are driven to Nevada weekly and unloaded directly into the facility. Past JBH strategic moves include Costa Rica; Colorado Springs, CO; Lehi, Utah; Chandler, AZ; and Malta, NY.
‘For over 56 years one thing has remained constant: of all the things JBH does, providing jobs for hardworking construction professionals is the most important. Our employees make JBH and we are honored to contribute to their livelihood, ensuring the well-being of each person and their families. Creating and sustaining jobs for our mechanical and architectural trade professionals plus our administrative staff is what gets me out of bed every morning’
Mark G. Henderson, CEO on being listed on the New Mexico Private 100 list.
