Purpose This paper aims to rank and identify the most efficient project managers (PMs) based on personality traits, using Preference Ranking Organization METHod for Enrichment Evaluations (PROMETHEE) methodology. Design/methodology/approach The proposed methodology relies on the five personality traits. These were used as the selection criteria. A questionnaire survey among 82 experienced engineers was used to estimate the required weights per personality trait. A second two-part questionnaire s...

Selected public Greek highway projects are examined in order to produce models to predict their actual construction cost based on data available at the bidding stage. Twenty highway projects, constructed in Greece, with similar type of available data were examined. Considering each project's attributes and the actual cost, correlation analysis is implemented, with the aid of SPSS. Correlation analysis identified the most predictive project variables. Additionally, the WEKA application, through i...

In the preliminary design phase of a concrete highway bridge project, a critical question arises concerning the pre-selection of the most suitable bridge type. The answer is related not only to cost-effectiveness, but also to the satisfaction of a number of conflicting compliance criteria. Therefore, the development of a reliable decision support system with respect to that kind of selection is an important research objective. In the context of this study, all contemporary construction capabilit...

Marine pollution has many different sources. This study focuses on oil spills that may occur after a ship collision or during oil extraction and other oil tanker activities. The most critical oil spill accidents are presented, followed by the regulatory framework on maritime oil spill management. Among the measures taken towards the protection of the marine and coastal environment from oil pollution are floating booms and barriers, oil collecting materials and vessels, absorbent materials, chemi...

Project Managers (PMs) are assets for every construction enterprise. The PM’s personality is essential as it defines the way that PMs cooperate with the project team and thus influence drastically the project performance. The current research focused on identifying the way gender influences the perception of required PMs’ attributes. In this context, a survey questionnaire was administered over a five-year period. Research survey successfully recorded 497 responses from Greek engineers. The surv...

ABSTRACTThis paper presents the total cost and cost distribution between activities required for the construction of reinforced concrete underpass bridges. The required material quantities of concrete, reinforcing steel, earthworks (excavation, soil improvement layer and backfilling), waterproofing works, joint formation and drainage system from 34 closed box section and slab frame underpasses from recent highway projects in Greece are statistically processed. Following analysis of this data, pr...

The construction sector has always been one of the main developmental branches of the Greek economy. Building activities and infrastructure projects were the backbone of the construction sector, while other activities from the mining, manufacturing, commerce and services sectors were integrated into the wider supply chain of construction. The aim of the present study is to firstly evaluate the performance and then rank the greatest construction companies, listed in the Athens Stock Exchange, usi...

Nowadays, construction and demolition processes produce a huge amount of waste. This study has recorded data on the current state of political, institutional, technological, and applied practices, in Greece. Moreover, a system dynamics approach was implemented in order to develop a model, to examine the relationship, between the three aspects of performance that underlie the waste management practices, namely: economic, environmental and social. The proposed model is then converted into a system...

How to compensate highway construction contractors is a complex decision that should be taken based on scientific evidence. Four different multi-criteria decision making methods, i.e., the multi-attribute utility theory, the technique for order preference by similarity to ideal situation, the preference ranking organisation method for enriched evaluation (PROMETHEE) and the PROMETHEE group decision support system method were applied to two case study projects with different characteristics and a...
