Constructability is defined as the integration of construction knowledge and experience in the planning, design, procurement, construction, operation, maintenance, and decommissioning phases of a project consistent with overall project objectives. Over the past several decades, much thought and effort has been devoted to improving constructability through the integrated efforts of owners, designers, and constructors. While a significant amount of research on the topic is currently included in project delivery processes, additional work is required to more fully understand how to optimize constructability on a project. Constructability Concepts and Practice provides an indispensable resource of constructability knowledge for a broad audience of industry professionals. Created by ASCE's Constructability Committee and Construction Research Council, this publication seeks to stimulate further exploration of the concept and improve future projects. It covers timely constructability topics such as state-of-practice, impacts, tools and resources, and education and training.
