Project delivery excellence

We help you build the right team behaviors to achieve extraordinary project outcomes.

Fifty-three percent of typical construction projects finish behind schedule, and most owners and project teams indicate they are not satisfied with the project delivery experience. Disconnects among team members, slow decision making, poor information exchange, and low transparency can all contribute to poor project performance. Advances in technology, software, and new tools for scheduling and planning are helping to improve time and cost efficiency, but cannot alone solve these challenges. How can you tap into better processes, new ways of working, and effectively manage teams to improve project outcomes?

At Haley & Aldrich, our Lean coaches know that creating and maintaining the systems for teams to deliver extraordinary project outcomes requires more than tools. We recognize that people — owners, planners, architects, and contractors — shape the built environment, and people deliver extraordinary designs and construction excellence. And that’s why we focus on growing people to transform the project delivery experience. We partner with you to not only create and maintain the right systems, but to grow and build the right skills for the highest performing project team.
