The EBFC Show

Superintendent Leadership

March 31, 2021

Frank Coln strives to create an environment of constant learning on his projects.  His experiences with pull planning and the Last Planner System go beyond one size fits all approaches that often fail.  He represents a growing number of construction superintendents that openly embrace Lean and actively work towards greater collaboration, patience, respect, flexibility, accountability, and use of technology.  He is reflective and intentional about how processes are and are not working.  


Frank says, “Listen to those PMs if you’re a superintendent, they’ll have a different perspective than what you have.” He was among the early integrated project delivery projects in Texas with an integrated form of agreement in the late 2000s as a Superintendent.  The Easier, Better, for Construction Show is where people working to make building easier and better share how.  Frank is committed to making construction easier and better and made numerous contributions to The Lean Builder Blog and The Lean Construction Blog.
