Constructability Reviews

As part of the Clancy & Theys team-build approach, we use virtual design and construction technology to review the designers’ drawings and digital building models during the design development and construction document process. This allows us to foresee any potential issues before they happen.

Avoid Conflicts

Avoiding Conflicts with Technology

Using automated “clash detection” and virtual walkthroughs, we identify issues that could add cost or negatively impact the schedule, and we pass those on to the design team. This allows the designers more time to arrive at the best solution before construction documents are issued rather than to make a hurried response during construction.

In this constructability review, we identified conflicts between rain drainage piping and steel beams during a preconstruction review. The architect was able to find a different route for the drainage piping and update the construction documents before they were issued to bidders.
