Buildable Design is the extent to which the design of a building facilitates ease of construction. It is also important to ensure that the productivity concepts initiated during the upstream design phase are implemented with labour-saving construction processes during the downstream construction phase. Constructability is the extent to which the adoption of construction techniques and processes affects the productivity level of building works on-site.
Affected projects are required to meet minimum Buildable Design Scores (B-Scores) and Constructability Scores (C-Scores). The following pages provide more information on Buildability.
