Abstract: It is the consensus of scholars that the productivity of the construction industry in very low when compared with other industries. Concurrent engineering which has a primary goal of reducing the lead-time, or the total time from designing a product to releasing it into the market, while creating better designs as well, has been identified as one of the concepts that has yielded itself to effective adaptation to the construction industry. This work looks at the application of this concept to construction industries in developing economies with a view to identifying the Enablers and Blocks to concurrent engineering application. The work identified the lack of awareness as the most important barrier militating against the integration of this concept into the Nigerian construction industry.
