TL;DR: Current trends, benefits, possible risks, and future challenges of BIM for the AEC industry are discussed and the findings of this study provide useful information for A EC industry practitioners considering implementing BIM technology in their projects.
Abstract: Building information modeling (BIM) is one of the most promising recent developments in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry. With BIM technology, an accurate virtual model of a building is digitally constructed. This model, known as a building information model, can be used for planning, design, construction, and operation of the facility. It helps architects, engineers, and constructors visualize what is to be built in a simulated environment to identify any potential design, construction, or operational issues. BIM represents a new paradigm within AEC, one that encourages integration of the roles of all stakeholders on a project. In this paper, current trends, benefits, possible risks, and future challenges of BIM for the AEC industry are discussed. The findings of this study provide useful information for AEC industry practitioners considering implementing BIM technology in their projects.
TL;DR: In this paper, the effects of delay on the completion cost and time of 61 building projects in Nigeria were assessed by questionnaire evaluation and empirical method, and the findings showed that time and cost overruns were frequent effects of delays.
TL;DR: In this article, the authors empirically compare cost, schedule, and quality performance of three principal project delivery systems, using project-specific data collected from 351 U.S. building projects.
Abstract: Construction management at risk, design/build and design/bid/build are three principal project delivery systems used in the United States today. This paper empirically compares cost, schedule, and quality performance of these three project delivery systems, using project-specific data collected from 351 U.S. building projects. The study included collecting, checking, and validating industry data, significance testing of univariate comparisons and the statistical development of multivariate linear regression models for predicting average project performance. A nonresponse study verified statistically that collected data were appropriate for analysis and representative of the industry from which they were drawn. Significance testing and multivariate comparisons used nearly 100 explanatory and interacting variables to explain project cost, schedule, and quality performance. Specific comparisons between project delivery systems, performance metrics, and six facility classes are discussed. Results and the level of confidence that surround each finding are presented.
TL;DR: In this article, the authors present an overview of research related to the costs and trends of green building and uses these research findings to make recommendations for greening project management practices for the construction industry.
Abstract: Environmentally sustainable building construction has experienced significant growth during the past 10 years. The public is becoming more aware of the benefits of green construction as prominent politicians, celebrities, documentarians, and journalists highlight the built environment's impact on greenhouse gas emissions and natural resource consumption. Other factors, including higher energy prices, increased costs of building materials, and regulatory incentives, are also pushing the green building market to grow and expand. However, barriers to green building continue to exist, including the ability to deliver a green project within acceptable cost constraints. In order for project managers to deliver sustainable construction according to clients' cost expectations, modifications must be made to traditional project management processes and practices. The objective of this paper is to suggest specific modifications to conventional building practices to optimize the delivery of cost-efficient green building projects. This paper presents an overview of research related to the costs and trends of green building and uses these research findings to make recommendations for greening project management practices for the construction industry. Our research results show that greening project management practices can add significant value to a sustainable construction project while delivering it within acceptable cost constraints. A detailed analysis using matrix present specific adjustments to traditional project management practices, with a premise that a green project improves its chances for financial success if a cross-discipline team is involved at the earliest stages and throughout the project.
TL;DR: In this article, the extent of integration achieved by construction project teams managed by award-winning construction managers within successfully completed projects is investigated, and it is concluded that either fully integrated teams are not necessary for effective project delivery within the industry, or the sector must overcome existing organisational and behavioural barriers if further improvements in project performance are to be fully realised in the future.
