CONSTRUCTABILITY REVIEWS: AN OPPORTUNITY FOR PARTNERING

The partnering concept of working together toward common goals has proven to be highly successful during construction. Constructability reviews offer the opportunity to expand this idea to include the design process. The definition, objectives, and benefits of constructability reviews are examined. The composition of the review team and procedures for conducting a constructability review are also discussed. Case histories of the author's involvement in a number of constructability reviews are related. It is concluded that constructability reviews are the direction of the future, but there is a need for an effective methodology to permit contractor participation in the process.
