The application of standardized work in manufacturing has resulted in many benefits, thus motivating researchers to apply it in the construction environment. The paper describes an application of standardized work in the task of Franki Piles concrete work. An exploratory case study was carried out in a residential construction project in Brazil. A method for standardized work application used in manufacturing and described in literature was taken as a basis and partially applied. The conclusions are that main steps of the method and as well as the procedures for data collecting, analysis and documentation of standardized work were successfully adapted to the construction environment studied. These were useful for characterizing wastes and discussing forms for eliminating it systematically, indicating potential gains in productivity of 45% for machines, and 70% for labour in an ideal implementation.
