How to Efficiently Conduct a Constructability Review for Site Safety & Security


A constructability review is a systematic process which involves a thorough evaluation conducted during the design phase of a project, prior to construction. The purpose of a constructability review is to identify, analyze, and mitigate potential constructability issues that could impact certain factors such as project’s schedule, cost, or safety.

During constructability reviews, experts make sure to analyze the construction site’s safety and security in the planned project’s initial blueprints. Moreover, safety and security are the main protectors of oil and gas industries, ensuring that projects are carried out according to plan while maintaining a safe and secure environment.

Significance of Safety & Security-Based Rules in Constructability Review Checklists

Adding safety and other security points to the list of considerations just before work is the best and most important way to make sure everything goes according to plan. Thus, it prevents accidents, work delays, and extra costs more than just the paperwork but also supporting such tasks in real life.

Benefits of a Well-Structured Constructability Review

  • Identification and mitigation of potential safety and security hazards:

Assists to identify potential safety and security hazards which can be mitigated through design changes or other measures.

  • Enhanced construction planning and coordination:

Enhances construction planning and coordination by identifying and addressing any potential conflicts or coordination issues arising, which in turn reduces the risk of accidents and injuries during any construction phase.

  • Safe and efficient work practices:

Promotes safe and efficient work practices by ensuring the structure of the project allows safe and efficient use of equipment and materials.

  • Implementation of strengthened security measures:

A strengthened security measure identifies and addresses any potential security vulnerabilities in the project’s design. This protects the project and its surrounding from unauthorized access and theft.

  • Train the staff on how to use emergency respiratory protection stuff along with safe driving away from the danger zone.
  • Promote a safety culture & keep yourself updated on all your staff especially the workers in the red zone.

Imposed Risks Due to the Exclusion of Safety Laws from Constructability Review

Here is a list of consequences that you can face in case you haven’t taken these safety measures seriously. Moreover, all of them can harm your project one way or the other.

Constructability Review


To conclude, Safety and Security are of great significance along with other major factors in the checklist of the Constructability review before starting the work. These special rules act as a compass and assist in finding the perfect way to finish the projects according to the initial plans by eliminating all major risks and problems like cost over-run and time delays.

Moreover, these rules help to gather and keep the team safe and sound for all future projects. In case of negligence while implementing important factors may result in project failures, unnecessary time consumption, cost-effectiveness, and injuries.
