The Swinerton Construction Innovations program is a corporate R&D initiative to ensure Swinerton continues to thrive for the next 130 years.
The Swinerton program focuses on changing business processes in order to drive substantial reductions in costs while increasing quality and safety of the work we deliver. We believe the key to transformative solutions is changing the process. Applying technology to existing processes only delivers incremental improvement.
Innovation Program Tenets
Execute Innovation Projects
The Innovation team partners with our business users to evaluate, pilot, and deploy new solutions. These projects typically start with the hypothesis: can we reduce cost X% by doing Y? From this hypothesis, we then follow a defined process for evaluating and measuring the solution.
Drive Innovation Culture
Innovation requires everyone across Swinerton to participate. Innovation cannot be successful in a lab, it has to be validated by the users it will impact. To ensure we have willing users, we have an innovation education program to deliver education training to all new Project Engineers, Superintendents, and Project Managers as well as up-and-coming leaders.
Corporate Innovation Strategy
Every Swinerton division includes innovation as part of their annual business plan. The corporate team works with division leaders to identify innovation initiatives, identify business operations ripe for disruption, and external disruptors to our businesses.
