John Lohan's  first job in construction was in 1991 in preparation for the Barcelona Olympics, worked as Quantity Surveyor for a number of years then switched from bad to worse, becoming Head of Procurement for Laing O’Rourke plc between 1998 and 2006, during which time he was involved in numerous projects including Terminal 5 and CTRL focusing in particular configuring their supply chains to deliver projects using lean construction methodologies. Since then he has worked in various design, supply chain and operational management roles for 

Taylor Woodrow and more recently the Byrne Group. He has a keen interest in technology, innovation and doing things differently which led him to taking up the role of General Manager in IBP.


Construction projects are often constrained by timescale and access problems.

DFMA (Design for Manufacture and Assembly) is now successfully being used in the Construction Industry to help overcome these constraints.

The presentation will describe how DFMA has been used with some notable success stories. Modern Methods of construction have supplemented traditional construction techniques to achieve these requirements.
