Construction projects have become more complex over time, and cost overruns and time delays have become a global phenomenon. Signs that can indicate future project failure, such as cost overruns and time delays, in early project phases are Early Warning (EW) signs. EW signs are defined as indicators for potential future problems. This research...

Despite the severity and high frequency of cost overruns in construction projects, it is considered a rule rather than an exception. This phenomenon occurs when the initially estimated budget does not suffice the actual costs needed to realise the project. Uncertainty and bias challenge the ability to make cost estimates. Incorrect estimates of...

Scheduling of a construction project using an activity network can be done using the Critical Path Method (CPM). CPM scheduling, since it was first developed in the USA in 1950’s, has been widely applied in various sectors including the construction sector. CPM, however, is incapable of reflecting the influence of uncertainty on schedules and...

Construction projects deal with a lot of uncertainties in the design stage and therefore, changes in the design are sometimes unavoidable. There are various factors leading to design changes, however, the most frequent factor is the client. Clients often produce vague design briefs and as a result, design changes are expected at a later stage,...

With the increasing amounts of data generated from various sources, companies are now aware of the data-driven applications more than ever. In the built environment, building or infrastructural projects are handed over as end-product and these projects are complex. Thus, this data disturbance requires multiple ways of project management...

BIM implementation is one of many developments in the building industry that is hindered by a resistance to change. Studies have shown that project managers are among the key players in BIM implementation. Especially when there is no clear vision on BIM, implementation is highly dependent on the project manager of a specific project. This...
