What Happens During a Constructability Review?


How many of you played with Legos, Building Blocks, or Tonka when you were a kid? There is something inherently fascinating about building something from scratch, or taking down an outdated façade to replace it with something more inviting and modern.

But starting either a construction or renovation project is not as easy as deciding to do it and getting it done. It involves complex steps such as feasibility studies, constructability reviews, putting together bid packages, conducting due diligence and site surveys… The list is long; and unless you hire the right team to oversee it all, you’re going to end up with either a string of migraines or a series of lawsuits.

Why a constructability review?

At the risk of sounding redundant, this type of review provides your team with an overview of the project and the most efficient ways to get it done. It will also save you money in the long run. For example:

  1. This is when a review of all applicable building, safety, and environmental codes get taken into account to ensure compliance.
  1. Since it provides contractors with a comprehensive analysis of the project, it allows the team to create an outline of what needs to get done, and the chronological order and deadlines for getting it done. This means potential issues can be identified and resolved before having them cause interruptions that result in additional costs and delays.
  1. It keeps clients happy in the sense that they can get a timeline of when the project will be completed. They, in turn, get to schedule grand openings, or any other event to notify the public that they are open for business.

Getting an efficient constructability review requires more than just familiarity with construction terms. This is when practical experience is invaluable. There are only so many things a person can learn from a book.
