Combining Lean construction with BIM is a far- sighted and prudent approach which results in various benefits. BIM lean construction refers to a construction process development which provides high value in the least possible resources. BIM lean construction principle facilitates all types of construction projects. Combining both the techniques helps in meeting unique requirements of each project and promotes smooth workflow.
