About Us

The Field Crew Huddle website was developed by the leadership of the Lean Construction Institute’s Trade Task Force. Our focus is to give a voice to the boots on the ground folks that plan, fabricate and install work. The task force represents a cross-section of the construction industry, emphasizing the perspective of the hard-working people across the trades.
