INTEGRATING CONSTRUCTABILITY INTO PROJECT DEVELOPMENT: A PROCESS APPROACH

The National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) initiated a research project to develop a constructability review process (CRP) for transportation facilities. The basic objective of this research was to develop a systematic approach and methodology for constructability reviews. This paper describes the development of a CRP that meets the NCHRP's research objectives. A process approach is followed to integrate constructability improvements into project development for transportation projects. A function modeling tool is used to portray the interface between the CRP and the project development process. The function modeling tool captures constructability functions and information necessary to perform these functions. The research method to develop the CRP is presented. The CRP has three phases corresponding to planning, design, and construction of a transportation project. Seven constructability functions are performed in each phase. The model was tested using two transportation projects of different complexity.
