Abstract : The design constructibility review has receive greater emphasis over the last few years as a means of curbing the rising cost of construction and the trend towards litigation in contract disputes. A process which was once taken for granted as part of the design procedure has now become an item unto itself. Owners have been driven to this because of the number of claims made by contractors due to inaccurate, incomplete or ambigious plans or specifications, and because the owner is becoming less satisfied with the quality of work he is receiving. With the current trends in the construction industry, the design constructibility review is quickly becoming a necessity.
