Constructability has been defined as "the optimum integration of construction knowledge and experience in planning, engineering, procurement and field operations to achieve overall project objectives". Those who advocate it as a concept claim that it can bring real benefits to all involved - clients, consultants, contractors and users. This book provides for the advanced student or practitioner a review of the concepts, principles and practices of constructability at each stage of the total construction process. After introductory chapters that explain the concept and principles of constructability and place them in the building/engineering context, the authors review the impact of different procurement routes on constructability, before moving on to focus in the implications in the design and construction phases. A key chapter is devoted to a sequence of case studies of real projects that illustrate the implementation; these cover building, engineering, services and refurbishment.
