The percentage of environmental and production waste generated in construction industry is more as compare to waste generated in manufacturing industry. This waste can be eliminated by means of Lean construction tools. Lean construction tool is a comprehensive set of methodologies based on system of beliefs and principles which lead to maximizing value and minimizing waste. Value Stream Mapping is a tool which helps to analyze current state of different waste and propose improvements in future state. In this paper, Lean construction tool called value stream mapping is used to eliminate environmental and production waste. In the present study Value Stream Mapping is applied for the construction of flyover in order to reduce the waste generated during construction. For the present study piling work of Chedda Nagar flyover Mumbai is taken for value stream mapping. Value Stream Mapping is also helpful in material management and it also comply project schedule and quality standards. It is found that Value Stream Mapping is useful to manage work schedule and total quality control, which subsequently help to eliminate environmental and production waste.
