Developing ABC Success Index to Support Contractors During Pre-Project Planning

The goal of this research is primarily geared towards supporting accelerated bridge construction (ABC) projects through twofold: attracting contractors to adopt ABC projects and informing project stakeholders about ABC success indicators during the pre-project planning phase. Given the novelty of ABC method, providing knowledge of ABC success indicators during pre-project planning phase will have a significant impact on ABC project success. This is particularly true since planning efforts conducted during the early stages of a construction project, known as pre-project planning, which encompasses tasks from project scope, definition, alignment, funding source/s, initiation to the beginning of detailed design, has a significant effect on project success than efforts undertaken after project kickoff. Therefore, this study reinforces the success of ABC projects during the early planning phase by pre-informing contractors about the success indicators, which can be developed into a tool elicited from analyzing successes of previous ABC projects.
