The ability to configure the Construction Readiness template and related aspects such as terminology and scoring ranges helps address the most significant barriers to introducing a change in process and make it fit-for-purpose to your organization.

Some common considerations for custom configuration include:

  • Departmental/unit considerations (e.g. names, roles, responsibilities)
  • Policies and procedures within the organization
  • Gate deliverables and project phases
  • Regulatory requirements
  • Industry-specific terms
  • Language translations

Carve for Owners

The Construction Readiness Assessment gives you a consistent and objective process to measure readiness which can reduce the chances of cost and scheduling overruns in the construction phase.

Clear & objective process to measure progress

Carve delivers clear, graphical indicators for each category within the Construction Readiness Assessment.

The Readiness Chart displays readiness in comparison to industry targets and also clearly illustrates the differences between the current assessment and the previous assessment so that you can see where progress has (or hasn’t) been made.

Concise information that supports decision making based on facts

The assessment data can be filtered to see which categories require more attention in order to achieve readiness. In addition, action items can be assigned to each element to ensure follow-up.

Following the assessment, action items can be ordered by priority with a simple drag-and-drop action.

These action items are included in the summary report for project stakeholders to follow-up and ensure completion.
