TrueNorth Brings

If you struggle with cost and knew you had a few thousand dollars of waste designed-in to your product, would you want to ferret it out?

Let us show you where and how to begin.

LeanPlans:
Plan Better, Build Better

LeanPlan Workout™

TrueNorth has teamed up with Todd Hallett, principal at TK Design & Architecture, to launch a radical new approach to plan reviews. Use our 765 check points gleaned from Lean experience to improve bottom line performance by reducing your cost to build. Eliminate framing/plumbing conflicts, missed intersects, mis-sized rooms for drywall or flooring, and on, and on, and on...

These are not "dumbed down" houses; they are your plans, optimized.

We focus on design-induced waste present in virtually every house, as identified by your own suppliers and trades, and design it out with the help of our 765-point Lean Filter, devised with the input of over 1,700 supplier and trade contractors.

Nobody in this industry can match the input.

LeanPlan Workout™ pays for itself in the first few units built, and will generate additional profit with each unit built therefter.
