Thermal comfort is the main driver of buildings energy consumption; it has been classified by building occupants to be of greater importance compared with visual and acoustic comfort. To respond correctly and quickly to the increase in energy price and pollution, thermal regulations and comfort approaches have emerged. This paper compares the thermal performances and energy demand of a vernacular and a low-income modern dwelling using two major thermal comfort approaches (Givoni’s approach and a...

Construction process stages are argued to be vulnerable to the prevalence of corrupt practices. However, the validity of this argument has not been empirically explored in the extant literature of construction management. Therefore, this study examines the stages of the construction process susceptibility to corruption and its most prominent forms of corrupt activities (within the respective stages). A total of forty-four project-related professionals were involved in an expert survey to assess ...

The present article’s main purpose is to describe the synergies generated from the simultaneous application of the Lean Construction philosophy (LC) and Management of Heritage Structures and Conservation Strategies (MHS&CS). We explain the main principles, tools, techniques, modern technologies and practices of the Lean Construction philosophy and Lean Project Delivery System (LPDS) that could integrate and make synergy with the elaboration of MHS&CS study, and with the implementation of the MHS...

Abstract Sugar is one of the oldest commodities in the world. It can be produced from sugarcane, sugar beet or other crops having sugar content. Wide applications of sugar make massive demand in the domestic including international market. An assessment of environmental impact for sugar processing industry has done in terms of production, processing, recycling, and utilization. Sugarcane mill has a significant contribution on government revenue and employment opportunities. It has other goodness...

Purpose The purpose of this paper is to discuss a production planning and control model known as the Lean construction management (LCM) model, which applies a number of visual tools in a systematic way to the planning and control process. The application of the visual tools in this way facilitates the flow of information, thus improving transparency between the interfaces of planning, execution and control. Design/methodology/approach Design Science research is adopted for this investigation, wh...

Purpose Lean construction provides innovative practices to manage construction projects while reducing waste and improving performance. This paper aims to explore the current level of awareness of lean construction practices among Moroccan construction professionals to assess the potential benefits derived from lean construction practices and to identify the critical barriers hindering a successful implementation. Design/methodology/approach The paper opted for a quantitative approach by using a...

Purpose The pre-tender estimation process is still a hazy and inaccurate process, despite it has been practiced over decades, especially in Malaysia. The methods evolved over time largely depend on the amount of information available at the time of estimation. More often than not, the estimate produced during the pre-tender stage is far more than the tender cost of the project and sometimes, it is perilously underestimated and caused major problems to the client in the monetary planning. The pur...

Abstract Complex construction projects are risky owing to several features and factors. Their management involves risk assessment which is subjected to various behavioural tendencies and the existing body of knowledge lacks appropriate methods to quantify these effects. The prevalent standard model of Expected Utility Theory does not differentiate between threat and opportunity, resulting into an identical estimation for both facets of risk. This limitation was addressed by Prospect Theory which...

ABSTRACTThe factors impacting the adoption of industrialised building systems (IBS) technology is gaining increasing attention in Malaysia, particularly because of the slower-than-expected pace of adoption. This paper aims to identify the factors that influence the decision to use IBS in construction projects. The research methodology is embedded in an interpretative phenomenological paradigm that is applied through semi-structured face-to-face interviews with a group of 27 experienced construct...
