Relative importance of constructability versus other lifecycle properties to achieving project success Another survey question asked about how success at addressing constructability was measured. Indicators of enhanced constructability might be a minimal number of change orders and requests for information (RFI’s), reduced construction cost or cost escalation, shorter schedules or schedule slippage, and a higher quality product. The results from this question are provided in Table 2. Designers primarily use constructor feedback, construction cost, the number of change orders, and the number of RFI’s to measure performance in the area of constructability.
