Alexander Building Construction Co. project manager earns CM-Lean certification

State College, PA, July 21, 2017 . . . Dennis Walter, Project Manager for Alexander Building Construction Co., a Butz Family Company, recently earned a Certificate of Management-Lean Construction (CM-Lean) from the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC). Lean Construction is based on the holistic pursuit of continuous improvements aimed at minimizing costs and maximizing value on construction projects.

AGC's CM-Lean is an assessment based credential denoting knowledge and understanding of concepts related to Lean adoption, practice and process transformation outlined in AGC's Lean Construction Education Program. CM-Lean candidates must successfully complete a series of seven Lean Construction Education Program courses. Due to constantly evolving Lean concepts, individuals must keep current with advancements through Lean-related continuing education in order to keep their certification valid.

Walter has worked on numerous projects for Mount Nittany Health utilizing Lean techniques.
