Statements are presented of problems of residential construction in inclement weather and a summary of the state-of-the-art is given. The make-up of the residential construction industry is reviewed and a list of 23 tasks typical for constructing a residence is presented. Further, the physical and financial impact of weather on the construction process are explored. The use of air-supported shelters for construction shelters is examined. Conclusions are drawn that 1 Use of air-supported shelters offer a better means of achieving all weather construction capability 2 The concept is technically feasible and 3 The concept is economically feasible. Recommendations for additional research are made.
