One of the fundamental goals for the success of a construction project is found to be completion within the budget. To reach this goal, cost estimation is a key process which can be divided into the estimation of direct and indirect costs. Unlike direct costs, indirect costs are not directly connected with the performance of any particular...

In recent years the AEC industry has started implementing more new technologies. Still, the adoption process is slow. One of the crucial steps during the building designing is a justification of design according to previously defined requirements. That process is still manual to a large extent, therefore unnecessarily time-consuming and prone to...

The construction industry has always been plagued with a high number of accidents and fatalities. The Dutch construction is not an exception in this case and had the highest percentage of workplace accidents among all industries in the national economy, in the year 2019. The high number of accidents and resulting fatalities can be attributed to...

In the current breakwater design process, not all feasible concepts can be explored due to time constraints. However, designers are also influenced by breakwaters constructed near, or at the same location as their breakwater project. But also conservative assumptions influence the breakwater design process, for instance, regarding the wave...

In Chile, the Biobío river separates the cities of Concepción and San Pedro de la Paz. Bridges crossing the Biobío river ensure a fast and dependable connection, which contributes to the transport options in the region. With the Biobío region being the second largest contributor to the country's GDP, an unreliable transport network is highly...

neering (SE). Nowadays, this approach is more and more instructed by clients in the Netherlands. The switch to Systems Engineering was necessary because of the development of integrated contracts (UAV-GC; Uniform Administrative Conditions for Integrated Contracts) such as Design-Build-Finance-Maintain (DBFM) and Design & Construct (D&C)....

An increase in air traffic demand, aging pavement infrastructure, and limited funds make pavement management decision making a difficult process. Pavement management systems (PMS) are essential for pavement management. PAVER, the most common airport pavement management system (APMS) assists pavement managers by identifying the surface condition...

It is desirable to predict construction cost with a high level of accuracy in the early phase to compare the budgetary with feasibility determinations. Additionally, it is required to be as quick as possible. However, the accuracy of the cost estimation depends on the design details which are extremely limited in such an early phase, rendering...

Traditional construction planning and performance control tools such as Gantt Charts and S Curves fail to visually represent physical project progress, construction sequence, interfaces and the critical path, which means that decision makers carry out their job with incomplete information. Moreover, these tools motivate a quantity-oriented...
