U.S. Engineering places a strong emphasis on LEAN construction with our LEAN Eagle company initiative.  This initiative has facilitated LEAN advancements company-wide, including better organization of jobsite tools and materials, collaborative design, and streamlined accounting and billing operations.  When thinking LEAN, U.S. Engineering reflects on the Five S’s that originated in Japan’s automotive industry: sort, straighten, systematically clean, standardize and sustain.
