What is a Best Practice?
It’s a process or method that, when executed effectively, leads to enhanced project performance. To qualify, a practice must be sufficiently proven through extensive industry use and validation. Best Practices are validated by quantifiable results from widely accepted use and construction industry research.
The Construction Industry Institute (CII) was formed over 20 years ago to improve cost effectiveness of the nation’s largest industry. Drawing from members nationally who represent a cross section of owners and contractors, it combines industry based experience with academic based research. Through that process, CII has identified 17 Best Practices that produce quantifiable results.
What kind of results? Compared to standardized practice, use of the Best Practices:
- Reduce project cost growth
- Improve schedule reductions
- Improve safety with reduced lost work day incidence rates.
