Creation of large healthcare infrastructure facilities involves complex construction projects. These complex projects face the risk of poor delivery in terms of time adherence and end up in delays. Identification of sector-specific factors of delay at a regional level can help with timely delivery of projects. This paper intends to investigate the challenges in the construction of hospitals in India. The study was based on a qualitative approach and used content analysis to investigate the facto...

Urbanization is taking place in India at a faster rate which leads to high housing demand. The same is achieved by conventional construction method which consumes time, material and high energy resources. The world is also facing natural resources and energy crisis. Hence, for better natural resource optimization, it is imperative to adopt such construction methodologies and materials which reduce the construction cost, CO2 emission, and at the same time speedy construction with least energy nee...

Development of a nation is directly related to the accomplishment of public infrastructure projects. They cater to the objectives of sector-specific demand and accrue benefits in other related fields. These architectural engineering projects contribute to the overall development, which is complex to measure in tangible terms alone, but call for establishing indicators for measuring intangible benefits as well. Delay in projects is considered to affect the tangible cost benefits. It is, however, ...

Purpose The purpose of this paper is to identify and validate user requirement related building performance attributes and sub attributes for performance evaluation of government residential buildings. Design/methodology/approach User requirements in a building were listed from ISO 6241-1984 (E). Seven building performance attributes were identified through literature review and linked with the user requirements. Three more attributes not directly related to building performance but that could i...

User satisfaction should be the primary concern of the infrastructure development agencies, especially in residential projects. Government residential projects are built with huge expenditure and maintenance of these assets also consumes enormous public funds. The facility maintenance agency remains accountable for the expenditure incurred on these assets to ensure performance. Presently public spending by government agencies lacks effective monitoring post construction especially on maintenance...

AbstractDisputes are common and unavoidable in any construction project. These must be resolved in a timely manner lest they adversely affect time and cost aspects of the project and even affect its economic viability. Arbitration has been used as a means of dispute resolution as it is considered to be a speedier and more cost-effective way of conflict resolution than litigation. However, the arbitration process has often been marred by delays leading to time and cost escalation, thereby failing...
