Abstract Environmental problems, especially climate change, have become a serious global issue waiting for people to solve. In the construction industry, the concept of sustainable building is developing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In this study, a building information modeling (BIM) based building design optimization method is proposed to facilitate designers to optimize their designs and improve buildings’ sustainability. A revised particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm is applied...

ABSTRACTThis article examines the relationship between biographical characteristics of top executives and the level of corporate environmental information disclosure (EID) for Chinese-listed companies based on the upper echelons theory. Some interesting findings appear. Using a sample of 871 manufacturing companies having data of EID, we find that under the current situations such as the lack of external pressures on environmental protection, especially from the government, top executives may ha...

AbstractWorkforce forecasting is a strategic managerial practice that construction organizations should implement to ensure a balanced workplace. The workforce forecasting systems that have been developed are either qualitative or quantitative in nature. This paper develops a sustainable workforce model that utilizes both quantitative and qualitative data to improve the accuracy of workforce demand and supply forecasts. Using empirically derived data for off-site construction technicians in Hong...

Innovation has been one of the key drivers of sustainable competitive advantage for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). However, many SMEs have difficulties in achieving successful innovation. This article attempts to explore the major factors and constraints to innovation for SMEs in China. Based on a survey to 188 Chinese manufacturing SMEs, the relationship of 10 major factors affecting innovation performance has been explored. The findings indicate that there is a positive relationshi...

This paper explores the impact of different cooperation networks upon their cooperative innovation effect (CIE) and innovation performance, and examined the relationship between the CIE and the innovation performance of firms. Some interesting findings appear. First, the findings indicate that there are significant and positive relationships between the seven cooperation networks and the CIE of firms, of which the internal cooperation network has the most significant and positive impact on their...

This article examines whether economic performance could affect EID and how the relationship is determined by the form of ownership from voluntarism to regulation under the current Chinese context. In this study, our empirical results show that the relationship between firms’ performance and EID is complex and the interactive impact of ownership and economic performance on EID significantly varies from voluntary disclosure to mandatory disclosure. This study provides a more comprehensive underst...

We have empirically examined the relationship between top executives’ turnover and the corporate environmental responsibility by identifying the influence of ten specific turnover reasons resulting in the chairman’s departure and two important types of chairman’s succession. Using a sample of 782 manufacturing listed companies across 3 years in China, we find that the corporate environmental responsibility is negatively associated with the involuntary and negative turnover (i.e., dismissal, heal...

Although the system reliability theory has a high capability in quality quantification, while system reliability optimization (SRO) has been well developed in manufacturing engineering, seldom can their applications be found in the construction industry. This study aims to develop a system reliability theory based multiple-objective optimization model to conduct SRO, and then identify the cost–quality trade-off solution for construction projects. First, the whole construction project is treated ...

Abstract Based on Genetic Algorithms (GAs) with the matrix approach, the presented model introduces a pre-decision algorithm combining electronic spreadsheets to visually unfold the precedent relationship of activities in project scheduling problems. Trying to avoid large modification to traditional genetic algorithm operators and chromosome structures, the proposed method is improved by reducing time consumption in searching solutions. To demonstrate the technique, two types of scheduling probl...

Abstract Under an intensive competitive environment, the construction industry is facing pressure to meet the higher customer expectations under a tighter budget. On the other hand, construction is one of the main sectors generating greenhouse gases. The aim of this study is to assist decision-makers to identify the trade-off solution between construction cost and CO 2 emission. A particle swarm optimization model is proposed. First, construction projects are broken down into a series of work pa...
