What is Constructibility Review?
Constructibility review is an ongoing process to enable that the right engineering deliverables will be completed supporting the required construction sequence in a timely manner. This we also call construction-driven engineering. In order to do a constructibility review, construction experts or trade specialists need to get involved during the engineering design phase. The goals are to minimise rework on site, delays in construction because of engineering deliverables not available in time or incomplete, to review consistency of drawings regarding height and level elevation and more for modules to fit, to ensure safe access for maintenance personnel, and to ensure that the construction sequence is commissioning-driven.
This requires a different mind-set and traditional silos have to vanish.
DesignPro has tools and experts available to support. We need it more than ever. Think about it the Empire State Building was finished in 1931 in 13 months. How much has performance efficiency developed in construction since then. It is time for some real re-thinking. Constructibility Review needs to be part of the project life cycle. It can be best manifested in a suitable project-delivery method, such as DB (design-build) or IPD (integrated project design).
The short video below from Bentley sums it up very well.
