Implementing CII’s Construction Readiness Methodology
The Construction Readiness Assessment (CRA) is a methodology developed by the Construction Industry Institute for
- monitoring project health
- ensuring productive construction starts
- and avoiding out-of-sequence work
Construction industry research indicates that construction-ready projects have 20% better cost and scheduling performance compared to those projects that start construction without being ready.
We’ve helped owners, EPCs and contractors globally to achieve significant progress in ensuring projects are construction ready.
Valency has developed Carve for Construction Readiness as a key implementation resource to help organizations apply the findings from CII’s research and clearly identify whether or not a project is construction ready.
Introduction to the Construction Readiness Methodology
How Construction Readiness Adds Value
Ready projects significantly outpreform non-ready projects
Cost growth reduction
Schedule growth reduction
Achieve construction readiness with confidence
Projects often face pressure to begin construction early leading to significant productivity loss and resulting in cost and schedule overruns.
Project teams need a consistent and objective process to easily identify the gaps that must be addressed to achieve readiness with confidence.
