Constructability in Building and Engineering Projects by Alan Griffith, A.C. Sidwell

By Alan Griffith, A.C. Sidwell

Constructability has been outlined as "the optimal integration of development wisdom and adventure in making plans, engineering, procurement and box operations to accomplish total venture objectives". those that suggest it as an idea declare that it might convey actual merits to all concerned - consumers, specialists, contractors and clients. This ebook presents for the complex pupil or practitioner a assessment of the innovations, rules and practices of constructability at every one level of the whole building procedure. After introductory chapters that specify the idea that and rules of constructability and position them within the building/engineering context, the authors assessment the effect of alternative procurement routes on constructability, sooner than relocating directly to concentration within the implications within the layout and building stages. A key bankruptcy is dedicated to a series of case stories of genuine initiatives that illustrate the implementation; those conceal construction, engineering, providers and refurbishment.

This leads us to defining the steps that need to be taken to succeed in such an endeavour. Certainly, empirical studies such as the pioneering work of CIRIA have identified principles of good constructability in basic technical terms. Similarly, subsequent research has laid the basis for widening the scope of understanding in the management of construction projects. What is required now is a recognised framework and a set of strategies for implementing the recognised principles and so integrating the individual contributions in order to produce better constructability across the total construction process.

Ostwald, 'The Development of a Conceptual Model of Buildability which Identifies User Satisfaction as a Major Objective', Paper. CIB Conference, Rotterdam, 1992. New South Wales Government Construction, Policy Steering Committee, Capital Project Procurement Manual, NSW, Australia, October 1993. Construction Industry Institute (CII), Australia, Constructability Principles File, Cll, University of South Australia, Adelaide, Australia, 1993. 2 Strategies for Constructability Chapter 1 considered the interrelationship between design and construction, which is paramount to the successful consideration of constructability in modern construction projects.

2. Design-construct approach Design-construct procurement commences when the client identifies the need for a building or other construction.
