About this webinar



Have you ever asked, why didn’t they think of this during design?  Working on a design, have you ever wondered how the project might be constructed so the design can be optimized for construct-ability?  Many in our industry, for decades, have pursued ways to improve the nexus between design and construction.  This webinar explores a powerful approach to make design and construction considerations an integral part of project development.


WSDOT has launched an initiative to evaluate, develop and implement best practices for linear schedule of transportation projects. Linear scheduling may be an effective tool for construct-ability reviews earlier in design and to identify coordination opportunities. It can enhance processes related to project cost risk assessment, value engineering, and stakeholder engagement. This multi phase study includes surveys and interviews of key WSDOT project personnel; and pilot use of the linear scheduling with off the shelf software in a selected project. This webinar is a platform for researchers to present some preliminary findings at an early stage, gather input and attract potential interviewees and participants for future stages.
