ENERGY USE IN THE CONTRACT CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY. APPENDIX A. STUDY METHODOLOGY

This report contains data describing the activity of the contract construction industry expressed in terms of the dollar value of construction. A prime requirement of the methodology employed was the development of a traceable relationship between the dollar value of construction activity and the type of construction, geographical area of construction, and the energy consumed during construction. The basic methodology used to estimate fuel and energy use for representative construction projects involved the following: postulating representative construction projects of at least three sizes for each division of the industry; identifying energy-consuming equipment required for each project and determining fuel and energy consumption rates for each equipment type; estimating hours of operation for each type of equipment; and estimating fuel and energy use for each project by combining the results of the above two steps.
