Designing Plans for Constructability

by Russell L. King,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Preparing for Construction in the 21st Century


The writer has obtained several years experience acting as construction engineer for roadway rehabilitation projects as a consulting engineer. In this capacity, it is necessary to provide field engineering services using plans prepared either in-house or by others. Over the years, on numerous projects, in various locations, for a variety of clients, the writer has noticed that not enough consideration was given to existing utilities, right of way constraints, and drainage patterns during project design. Since they were not properly considered, construction and peripheral costs were higher than anticipated, construction time was increased, and field changes were made which modified the design concept.
