Abstract:

Constructability is defined as the ease with which a project can be built and the inherent capability of contract documents to be understood, bid, administered, and enforced. Essential for a high degree of constructability is the effective review of contract documents and resolution of identified problem areas prior to advertisement and award. This report first examines the definition of a ROICCNavy Resident Office in Charge of Construction constructability review and explores the impacts of poor reviews and causes of contract document errors. Next, a summary and analysis of existing ROICC constructability reviewing guidance culminates in conclusions and recommendations for guidance improvements. It is recommended that a thorough how-to form of constructability review guidance is needed to replace current guidance consisting of brief memory aid checklists. The second section of the report details such a proposed how-to guide for ROICC constructability reviews. It consists of detailed reviewing guidance and illustrative examples.
