What It's About:

Constructability is a project management technique that reviews construction processes from start to finish before a project is started. There is often a disconnect between architectural plans and the structural engineering required for a project, so these pre-construction reviews are critical for reducing errors, delays and cost overruns. Technology, such as 3D modeling, is making constructability more efficient than ever as projects can be built virtually to instantly identify and resolve potential obstacles or mistakes. In this advanced session, discover the technology available, study actual 3D models/reviews and learn how working with all team members (designers, vendors and engineers) to identify issues upfront can dramatically improve your bottom line.

What You'll Learn:

  • Explore technologies and software available for constructability reviews.
  • Learn how integrating structural elements, such as floor and roof trusses, into a 3D model can instantly show problems or mistakes before a project has started.
  • Identify common mistakes in pre-construction project management.
  • Save money and time by better planning your project.
