This paper adds to the literature on innovation studies in developing economies by exploring features of the industry environment that drive project-based innovation. Using a conceptual framework of five key innovation determinants and a multiple case study, the study draws on evidence from four construction projects in Ghana by means of interviews...
Article
Full-text available
The construction industry is a sector of the economy that transforms various resources into constructed physical economic and social infrastructure necessary for socio-economic development. Labour forms an integral part of the construction process and cannot be overlooked. The reward of labour wages has become a domain for agitation in recent times...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Variations on construction projects are very common and managing them is very significant. Challenges to project teams in managing variations generally retard the progress of a construction project. Such challenges affect all parties involved including the client, consultant and contractors, the impact of how badly it affects the project as a whole...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Ghana's construction industry is failing to properly meet infrastructure demand. Over the years, the industry has been characterised by delays, poor quality work, and cost overruns among other things. The lack of a proper regulatory mechanism has been cited as the culprit. Industry players have thus proposed the formation of a central regulatory ag...
Article
The Australian urban construction electricity sector has witnessed a transformational effect in the use of small-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) systems in the past decade. Currently, Australia has one of the highest rates of rooftop solar PV users with over 20% of households connected. This will see a rapid growth in the volume of PV waste in the co...
Article
Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, are effective measures to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions related to the generation of power. However, the large exploitation of solar PV modules, leads to undesirable waste accumulation, impacting the environment. Solar PV waste management research is an emerging field which has received more attention recently...
Article
The marketing of sustainable construction materials have gained much popularity worldwide in recent times due to its environmental protection, social responsibility, and economic viability. Nevertheless, in developing countries, the concept is still evolving and as such the pricing of sustainable construction materials remained a challenging area f...

This article which is the first in the compensation events series identified significant compensation events in relation to construction time from the perspective of the consultant, client and contractor. Significant compensation events under cost and profit will be looked at in the subsequent papers. Quantitative research approach was espoused and...
Conference Paper

This paper aimed to empirically identify the barriers that hinder the adoption of Building Information Modelling (BIM) in the Ghanaian Construction Industry. Based on a quantitative approach adopted, the study explored the underlining dimension of the barriers proposed for the study. A purposive sampling approach was used, dataset was obtained from...
Conference Paper

Many structures age and outgrow their original functions. Even though there has been a surge in technology prompting construction and design to be constantly updated to meet modern demands, many older structures have been left in the wake of change. The main aim of this research is to explore the drivers of adaptation and retrofitting of existing b...
Article
Full-text available
Building Information Modelling (BIM) can contribute significantly to the successful implementation of construction projects. This paper tests the level of acceptance of BIM in the construction industry in Ghana using the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM). TAM postulates that the level of success of an information system can be determined by user ac...
Thesis
The concept of project team is to bring people from loosely coupled capacities to undertake sophisticated assignment of multi-disciplinary nature in the construction industry. Due to the fact that the group members may be drawn from different organizations, there is the possibility of conflicting interests. Variations can occur throughout a project...
