October 21, 2019

Arlington, VA

The Lean Construction Institute (LCI) recently honored Victor Sanvido, Senior Vice President at Southland Industries, with the Pioneer Award at its 21stAnnual LCI Congress in Fort Worth, Texas.

A dedicated advocate of LCI and the Lean community for over 20 years, Sanvido has been extraordinarily influential in encouraging some of the country’s most progressive owners to effectively implement Lean processes. With a PhD in civil engineering and extensive studies in project delivery, he has proven himself uniquely qualified to assist and consult with owners on the best methods of approaching design and construction projects.

“Victor Sanvido’s contributions to LCI and the Lean community over an extended period are unparalleled,” said Dan Heinemeier, Executive Director of LCI. “He has made LCI a much stronger and more influential organization than we otherwise would have been, and he has impacted our industry for the better by helping project teams coast-to-coast to see and eliminate waste and enhance value for the owners they serve. We could not have chosen a more worthy recipient of this year’s Pioneer Award.”

About Lean Construction Institute:Founded in 1997, LCI is a nonprofit, membership-based organization with a vision to transform the built environment through Lean implementation.

LCI advocates for using a variety of tools and techniques that help promote collaborative planning, waste elimination and work-site safety.
