Realising the Design – Design for Construction 2
Design for Construction 1 looked at a variety of ways that design at the front end could influence the end product while the contractor realises the design of the designer. Part 2 looks more specifically at methods of preassembling components into parts, or the whole of the structure, for safety, speed of construction and cost effectiveness. This can also impact on the early design but often requires temporary works within the structure to accommodate the reverse loadings which ca be imposed during the build process.
