Company Activity

At Jones, we recognise the growing awareness around the demand for responsible business behaviour with issues relating to sustainability, ethics and respect for all of our stakeholders. We are extremely passionate about culture, diversity and inclusiveness in the workplace and recognise the impacts that they have on both their environment and the society in which they operate.

Lean production was pioneered by Toyota after WWII

Designed around what is now known as the 5S’s, Lean Construction has a very specific set of principles that are employee centred. More than putting into place a set of improvement and efficiency techniques, Lean Construction is a culture. With Lean, you depend upon your workforce to identify hidden problems and eliminate them, reduce waste, evaluate practices and look at ways to improve efficiencies. Through teamwork, employees create and sustain a sense of urgency and unite under a single purpose – moving together towards the company’s goal.

Jones Engineering have invested a lot in becoming the leading advocates in Lean Construction in Ireland. It is vital to the success of this programme that we don’t take our foot off the pedal. In order to succeed our Lean principles must continue on every project. We have six Black Belts in the company who are ready to offer help and advice to all projects and branches of the company. The “A Better Way” programme is still running and anyone in the company is welcome to submit suggestions. Also our in-house training classes “An Introduction to Lean in Construction” endorsed by Lean Construction Ireland is available to be run on all projects.
