In recent decades, the construction industry has faced internal and external pressures such as the financial crisis, the profitability of the market and the growing value of the quality needed by the customer. Since it is a sector with low productivity and high levels of waste, especially with resources such as labour, it is important to look for new management methods and regulation of production. The creation of a competitive environment aimed at minimizing waste, costs and deadlines, meeting consumer needs and increasing quality and productivity in construction sites has broken old paradigms in this field through the implementation of Lean Manufacturing practices in civil works. Throughout this way, the purpose of this research is to study the application of Lean Manufacturing and its impact on construction management, through the production of case studies on construction sites, where these principles have been implemented and the findings obtained in this research are presented.
