Purpose Industry uptake of digital modeling is improving. Recent evidence suggests building information modeling (BIM) is the commercial reality of today’s construction education, and the way of the future that has truly begun. Amongst the significance of this is BIM’s potential to revolutionize the industry. The purpose of this paper is to use the learning experiences of undergraduate students in two construction management subjects involving quantity measurement and cost estimation to explore ...

The purpose of this paper is to examine the causal relationships between persisten...

Allegations of corruption have resulted in an investigation of Brazil’s national ‘oil’ company prior to an incumbent Brazilian president disputing their re-election. The investigation has examined allegations that several directors of the ‘state’-owned company received bribes from construction companies and that the funds were used to support the parties of the governing coalition. Using a case study, this paper presents the approach adopted by the Brazilian Federal Police to determine if collus...
