POSCO E&C is actively considering the implementation of Smart Construction to improve construction productivity in association with the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

POSCO E&C co-hosted the forum “Smart Construction: Lean Con., IPD & BIM for Building Project” on the 30th with the Architectural Institute of Korea, Korea Institute of Construction Engineering and Management, and Hanyang University.

Attended by over 100 people in related academia and the construction business, this forum was to share the current state of *Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) and Lean Construction in the US, which is an advanced ordering method in the construction business, by inviting Lean Construction experts Tariq Abdelhamid and Amr Abdel Azim from Michigan State University in the US, and also to discuss the direction for the Korean construction business.

*Lean Construction: Efficient construction management technique that maximizes quality while minimizing input such as human resources or equipment by eliminating waste elements in the process from design to construction
*IPD (Integrated Project Delivery): Integrated ordering system in which all the parties involved in the project such as client, designer and construction company form one team and collaborate horizontally to successfully carry out the project and distribute profits and risks.

POSCO E&C received a great response at the forum by introducing its current state of Smart Construction and presenting its case of the ‘construction of the natural graphite anode materials plant No. 2’ as a pilot project.

“POSCO E&C’s presentation will be an ideal case for other construction companies preparing Smart Construction,” said Hanyang University architecture professor Ahn Yong-han who attended the forum that day.
