A common claim in open education is that librarians are effective supporters in open education work because their talents for research, organization, and working with students make them natural supporters of faculty designing OER courses. This study seeks to understand how librarians and faculty interacted with one another in an deliberate...

This research presents methods for simulation and visualization of human factors. This allows for a performance based analysis of buildings from the local human scale to the larger building scale. Technical issues such as computational time and mathematically describing a buildings geometry are discussed. The algorithms presented are integrated...

In a context of a slow uptake of the Building Information Modeling (BIM) methodology in the Flemish region, we present the results of an educational research project, carried out over 4 semesters, in a multi-disciplinary, cross-campus collaboration. This project fosters an improved application of BIM, information management and communication, by...

The paper introduces a novel approach to understanding the nature of visual communication within the design process in architectural education using open-source interfaces. It derives from the idea that visual non-verbal communication indicates the critical moments of the design process, where communication efficiency could be improved. The aim...

This paper proposes a complementary approach for the architectural design studio. By interpreting architecture by means of an interactive (dance) performance as design task it combines architectural theoretical examination with the implementation of new technologies and event realization. This design studio concept integrates scenography,...

Project alliance is a relatively fresh project delivery method where the owner and service providers, the designer and the constructor, share the risks of the project in order to intensify their collaboration for the best of the project. Experiences from the model from “down under”, where it has broken through, reached Finland some years ago....

The major subject of this paper is the actual situation of large infrastructure projects in Germany based on a literature review of experiences in this field all over the world. The results of a field study show that many clients and contractors are dissatisfied with the current situation and wish for a change. To start with this change a...

Today in many of our neighbouring countries ‘working together in integrated project teams’, using groupware and BIM, is the future way of process thinking in the building practice. Everyone is convinced that ‘teams outperform individuals’! Especially when diverse skills, judgement and experiences can enhance the project’s outcome. This paper...

The boom era was characterised as continuous improvement in construction. Collaborative practices and a focus upon differentiation were primary features. The current market is austere with a primary focus upon cost. Survival is a dominant contractor strategy. Yet, certain contractors are retaining collaborative practices as a means to secure...

Kadefors, A. (author)
There is a call for new project management approaches that are able to deal with increased flexibility and put people aspects more in focus. In construction projects, formal models for relationship management are increasingly being used. Based on a case study of a Swedish hospital partnering project, this paper discusses how project managers...

Projects have traditionally been constituted by contracts, whose enforcement is held in place by governance mechanisms that involve high degrees of surveillance. In this light, partnering is advocated as a project specific, communicative alternative to this traditional legal coordination process of the construction industry. In a Danish context...

The positive nature of partnering to resolve adversarial relationships in the construction industry is well-rehearsed. However, critics have argued that espoused benefits of partnering have not materialised because business-as-usual prevails. Furthermore, some scholars insist that more needs to be done to analyse the practices of partnering by...

Like the notion of social impacts in Sustainable Development, social sustainability in design is a complex, contradictory and challenging area. Although not clearly defined, it is often where all the vague and immeasurable elements of Sustainable Design are placed. Addressing the balance of sustainability to include societal and human concerns...
