Founded in 1993, the IGLC (www.iglc.net) is an international network of researchers from practice and academia in architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) who feel that the practice, education, and research of the AEC industry have to be radically renewed in order to respond to the global challenges ahead. Annual conferences are the main activity of the IGLC, and their locations rotate amongst the continents. Conference organization is managed independently by a group of volunteers in each sponsoring country.
WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?
We are holding the IGLC annual conference in Boston this year to help build upon the momentum developed during the Lean Construction Institute’s annual congress held in the Seaport District in October 2015. Over 1,000 people attended that event! We hope IGLC 2016 will encourage companies and projects from New England, the U.S., and abroad to continue working on implementing lean practices to get better company efficiencies and project results.
IGLC-2016 will attract attendees who want to hear about lessons learned in AEC practice, discuss AEC project challenges and solutions, learn about the latest AEC research findings, and make vital business connections. Thus, IGLC 2016 will help further strengthen the Lean AEC community in New England, the U.S., and abroad.
We hope you will join us in Boston in July 2016!
