This paper describes a teaching tool being developed to fill gaps in the typical student's knowledge of the construction process. A CD-ROM and/or web site is being created to document construction practices in transportation, bridge, utility and building projects. It will also provide case studies of ways designs can be modified leading to more efficient construction. The information obtained from construction site visits, surveys, and interviews with construction site personnel is being organized in a way that makes the product interactive. Users will be able to focus on areas of construction of most interest. The tool provides a forum for contractors to detail the points they wished engineers knew about construction. The product will also contain miscellaneous information such as a glossary of construction terms and an overview of careers for engineers in construction.
