Productivity in the construction industry has been flat for fifty years while productivity of U.S. industry in general has nearly doubled, as outlined in a recent report by global consulting firm McKinsey & Company. There are many reasons for this construction productivity stagnation, a major one being the disconnect that frequently exists between design and construction teams. They too often view each other as adversaries, leading to friction, communication breakdowns, and designs that reflect a poor understanding of contemporary construction techniques. This seminar will define what constructability is and isn’t, address the importance of structural engineers and other designers embracing constructability thinking in their work, and highlight the significant gains in field productivity that result when they do. It will use examples of recent award-winning projects to illustrate key points.
