AbstractThis paper presents the results of a research project that focused on identifying and classifying the constructibility knowledge required during the programming, conceptual design, and schematic design phases of a complex building project. The investigation was a longitudinal study of the process of programming and early design for the Advanced Materials Research (AMR) Facility at Stanford University. The principal result of the investigation was the development of a structure for Constructibility Knowledge (CK). This structure led to the development of five testable hypotheses. These hypotheses were tested with direct interviews with key personnel of the project team. The results qualitatively validated the proposed structure. The conclusions of the paper highlight practical applications and describe potential areas for future research.
