Designing for ease of construction is something that is always demanded by contractors and a challenge for the designers. It is widely known that the ability to influence a structure and its future properties is at its greatest in early stages, i.e. the project preparation phase followed by the design phase. Despite the fact that there is an obvious need for knowledge of construction in design work, there is a lack of a consistent and structured transmission of experience between the construction stage and the designing engineers. The results in this project are achieved based upon three standalone studies. A thorough literature review, a meta-analysis of the current research covering effective bridge construction and a study of the current industrial view on how the industry intend to achieve a more effective bridge building process. Based upon these studies it is clear that using a holistic approach and a production oriented design methodology is likely to generate the progress that the construction industry needs.

Nyckelord: Sustainable, Efficient process, Structural design, Knowledge transfer, Integrated design process.
