Within traditional design processes, decisions are often made based on individualistic values and late-stage assessments conducted on a predefined set of design alternatives potentially leading to suboptimal design decisions and conflicts. The issues are further amplified by the growing complexity of construction project management where an...

In this study, using construction activities as an example, a proposal is made for the time-dependent prediction of the thermal sensation and the performance loss using a cooling vest, under transient conditions. The approach presented here can, mutatis mutandis, be used for any work activity and the use of a cooling vest, whether or not in a...

What long ago started as a small fishing village, seeking refuge from the Romans, slowly evolved into the city of Venice that we know today. With its unique location came unique problems, most of which were related to the interplay between Venice and its lagoon. By severe measures in the past it has continued to withstand the test of time. <br/...

Offshore wind is expected to be one of the important contributors to the energy transition towards a more renewable and sustainable energy future. This can be clearly seen from the amount of investments over the past years as well as from the substantial upcoming offshore wind projects in the years to come. Many technological implementation...

Kupers, Leidy (author)
The infrastructure industry is an industry that causes a severe threat to sustainability as it consumes a large amount of energy, resources and materials. The circular economy (CE) provides the opportunity to address this issue because CE is characterised by reducing the carbon footprint, using primary materials and protecting material resources...

This past century the demand for raw materials has risen sharply. This demand is expected to rise even further, which is not sustainable. Changing the linear model of consumption to a circular model can help to decrease levels of raw material demand. The application of service­oriented business models, called Product­Service System (PSS) can...

Ligthart, Vincent (author)
During construction projects, multiple stakeholders collaborate in reaching project success. To determine success - a subjective perception of the 'current' state-of-affair - stakeholders align their interpretations of what is valuable during assessment processes. A framework was developed which helps in making values explicit during these...

Batelaan, Frédérique (author)
The aim of this research was to investigate if and how the project performance of integrated construction projects can be improved by focussing on empathy during the preconstruction phase. Big infrastructural construction projects often face a poor project performance which causes the sector is aimed at searching for strategies to deal with this...

In the upcoming years in the Netherlands, the Dutch government will be focusing on renovating infrastructure assets. Moreover, a shift from organizing each project individually to a more program-oriented approach has been observed in renovating infrastructure, whereby synergy a prominent feature is. In addition, it is becoming increasingly...

One way to reduce the environmental impact of the construction sector is the inclusion of environmental requirements in the procurement of construction projects, also called Green Public Procurement (GPP). This thesis first analysed the current inclusion of environmental requirements in the invitation to bid, bid and assessment of the bid....

Construction Management and Engineering students need to acquire managing skills for solving real-world problems that are complex, rarely straightforward and lack 'one right answer'. For this, they need to become 'open designers', capable to be reflective, integrative and creative in- and on action with dynamic and new situations. In this...

The current construction market is segregated, under-performs and becomes more complex. Often leaving the client helpless when projects go wrong. Consortia arise to handle the complexity and segregation, while improved collaboration between contractors can raise performance, but do consortia solve these problems? This research examines whether...

This thesis ‘Towards sustainable projects´ will focus on the integration of sustainability aspects in projects in the engineering industry. This research uses the following definition for ‘sustainability’: “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” (Brundtland, 1987). This...

The literature on risk management acknowledges a growing number of Risk Maturity Models (RMM). However, for the construction sector, there is no validated RMM that is based on both theory and experts’ opinions. In this article, a Generic RMM (GRMM), inspired by the EFQM model, is developed and validated to remedy this shortcoming. The GRMM uses...
