Conference Paper
Full-text available
Modern architectonic designs are becoming increasingly more detailed to represent complex geometric configurations in every element of a building. However, using BIM platforms for the visualisation of complex models and projects is not the best way to transfer a real sense of physical objects. Therefore, it becomes important to explore new technolo...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The poor performance of construction projects remains a topical issue in the academic field of construction management. Across the globe, statistical data indicates that the construction sector is male dominated. The observed inequality is linked to conflicts, which is one of the main reasons for the poor performance of construction projects. The c...

Lean construction (LC) is widely used to eliminate waste in the construction industry. However, research on LC capability is lagging relative to other works in the LC field. By exploring relevant literature on the rigid and flexible characteristics of LC, this study proposes for the first time that LC capability is an ambidextrous capability from a...
Conference Paper
The construction industry has maintained a bias toward cost and time in its project execution over the years. Despite so much attention given to time and cost, both components have remained a problem to the industry. The resultant effect is cost and time overrun on projects. Poor planning and scheduling were identified as one of the significant cau...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose Clients’ satisfaction is often associated with performance in the construction industry. Organisations that achieve very high ratings of clients’ satisfaction improve their positions in the marketplace. Many clients are often dissatisfied with their project outcomes. Hence, a research study was carried out to examine the ways project manage...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This study seeks to examine how collaboration in planning has developed in the fields of urban planning (UP), software design and lean construction and to present what construction project management can learn from these developments. A critical literature review was adopted to achieve the aim of the study. The study found that the prevailing ratio...
Article
This study seeks to address two research questions: (i) what are the factors responsible for the non-completion of the craftspeople apprentice training programmes? and (ii) how can the non-completion of construction craftspeople apprenticeship programmes be improved? Eighteen semi-structured interviews were conducted with relevant stakeholders invo...
Article
Purpose Apprenticeship programmes are designed to provide young trainees with essential broad-based skills. Through apprenticeships, different sectors that are underpopulated can fill up their skills gaps. Apprenticeships are particularly useful to the construction sector which has a high ageing workforce and associated lower labour productivity. H...
