A strong constructability strategy is one of the key elements to delivering a successful construction project. While constructability reviews are common practice in the industry, many projects fail to use it in an adequate manner, allowing for timely and high quality information for the project. Below is a checklist of question a project team or program manager may use to identify the level of adequacy and the quality of his/her company's CR process.
Do you start you CR early in definition? (timing)
Do you have multiple CR sessions throughout the definition phase? (frequency)
Does your primary Construction Manager (CM) participate in the review? Will you have a new CM at execution? (continuity of strategy ownership and accountability)
Do you document your CR? (traceability)
Do you provide enough information as input to your CR (such as models, site reviews, technology considerations)? (quality)
AWP is a disciplined approach aiming to improve project productivity and predictability by aligning planning and execution activities throughout the project lifecycle, from project setup to startup and turnover. It is the overall process flow of the development of work packages in a staged, planned and executable process that systematically accounts for engineering, procurement and construction perspectives.
