The primary purpose of the Constructability Review Program (CRP) is to gather a diverse team of experienced engineers and construction contractors to identify, examine, and resolve constructability challenges before a project is let for construction. The discussion and recommendations developed during Constructability Reviews (CR) are primarily focused on ensuring that the project’s design is constructible. Examples of Constructability issues are utility locations, bridge construction, phasing, hydraulic conflicts, urban areas, etc. Constructability Reviews can include external stakeholders, such as municipalities.
Constructability Reviews generally take several hours, as they include a site visit at the project location and a meeting to review plan sheets and discuss options. Our office, once contacted, can arrange a constructability review within 3 weeks if necessary. However, if you have a request for less than two weeks we can work with you to make that happen. Constructability Reviews can take place for any project.
A list of past Constructability Reviews and issues can be found on Past CR Reviews. To request a review, contact the program leads below. To speed up the process you can include an attachment of the filled out CRP Project Review Form located on the side.
The Constructability Review Program has an open research project going on at this time. The research aims to develop a mechanism to track recommendations and suggestions made during the reviews to learn from their effectiveness. This will be implemented and fed back into the CLEAR system. Additionally, the research project is looking to develop the best method to conduct the reviews and identify some key issues that may typically trigger a constructability review.
