A Conceptual Cost Comparison Study between Alberta and Overseas Module Assembly Strategies for Industrial Construction ProjectsDownload
In recent years, the lower cost of construction resources in overseas countries (e.g. China and Korea) and advancements in transportation have increased the interest in offshore fabrication and assembly of industrial modules as an alternative to local assembly in Alberta, Canada. Many research...
This research focuses on the accounts payable function in construction firms. The cash conversion cycle includes accounts payable and accounts receivable support functions. Research objectives focus on mapping the existing accounts payable processes in construction, building a model to represent...
This research involves the development of a forecasting model that will aid project managers in estimating the owner’s project management staff requirements for a construction project utilizing historical data. This will support project managers in the decisions of hiring new resources or working...
This thesis focuses on determining innovative computer vision algorithms suitable for progress tracking and forming them into automated visual progress tracking framework. The main concept of this approach is reconstruction of an as-built 3D point cloud model of the object of interest based on...
Snow accumulation on roads is a major safety concern during winter. Winter road maintenance is an effective approach to maintain roads in good driving conditions and reduce accidents. A common approach for a winter road maintenance project is to partition the road network into multiple service...
School buildings are one of the most important educational and learning environments and the appropriate design of these spaces has a significant impact in enhancing both students’ and teachers’ performance, comfort and satisfaction. As a result, the preliminary design evaluation and optimization...
The allocation of resources over time, referred to as resource scheduling, in large-scale construction environments is a challenging problem. Although traditional network scheduling techniques are the most popular scheduling techniques in the construction industry, they are ineffective in...
A plethora of information combined with the participation of diverse disciplines during the tunneling life cycle results in fragmented information components. To address this problem, integrated information systems provide a unique environment to store project information. In this regard,...
Effectiveness Evaluation Model for Frontline Worker Safety Intervention: An Exploratory Case Study of a Construction Prefabrication CompanyDownload
Frontline foremen and workers play a critical role in implementing management’s safety policies and procedures. Despite the ultimate position in safety organization of frontline foremen and workers, variations in safety competency and acceptance level are often neglected, which leads to diverse...
Implementation of Bayesian Updating and Markov Chains to Improve Simulation of Stochastic Processes in ConstructionDownload
This thesis was mainly concerned with improving model-based prediction and forecasting of state variables of processes or systems using new, periodically-generated data within the construction domain. Some of these data are generated from field tests performed during feasibility studies, while...
