Article
Inspection is a crucial construction process ensuring that building works and workers comply with prescribed codes, standards, and building progress. Traditional inspection is characterized by physical effort and onerous paperwork. The emergence of e-inspection 1.0 has meant the adoption of computerized means to ease the burden of paperwork, though...
Article
Full-text available
Onsite assembly is a critical stage for modular construction. Its success or failure depends on accurate information sharing among numerous stakeholders who, unfortunately, often possess unsynchronized information. Owing to its decentralized consensus mechanism, blockchain has the potential to improve information-sharing accuracy on construction si...
Article
Full-text available
Configuring a trustworthy Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled building information modeling (BIM) platform (IBP) is significant for modular construction to ensure transparency, traceability, and immutability throughout its fragmented supply chain management. However, most current IBPs are designed adopting a centralized system architecture, which fail...
Article
Traditionally, construction managers were considered more experienced in project management than off-site production management, although the latter is gaining importance with the renaissance of modular construction worldwide. Various Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled Building Information Modelling (BIM) platforms have been developed to facilitate p...
Article
This research aims to develop a multi-criteria decision matrix (MCDM) for project management (PM) professionals, which will support blockchain type selection, evaluate blockchain platforms, and plan blockchain systems. The MCDM is substantiated through a case study that includes a questionnaire and an illustrative example pertinent to the construct...
Article
Late payment, and indeed no payment, is a rampant and chronic problem that has plagued the global construction industry for too long. Recent development in blockchain technology, particularly its smart contract, seems to provide a new opportunity to improve this old problem. However, this opportunity is largely unexploited. This study aims to devel...
Conference Paper
A smart contract is a protocol that can self-execute when predefined conditions are met. This new technology is considered destructive and can transfer the construction industry. In Blockchain 2.0, the combined use of blockchain and smart contracts allows users to express business logic to achieve more advanced transactions. This research aims to c...
Conference Paper
The construction industry is encountering management issues, such as low efficiency, inadequate regulation and enforcement, absence of good coordination and knowledge sharing, and ineffective billing practices. Blockchain is also gaining momentum as a part of the digital transformation in the construction area and response to various challenges. Si...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Building information modeling (BIM) has been widely used as the information hub for collaborations and has increasingly been mandated in the construction industry over the past decade. From the information perspective, there have been three BIM-based exchange paradigms: (i) file-based, (ii) cloud-based, and (iii) blockchain-based. Digital twin (DT)...
Chapter
Blockchain can be regarded as a distributed database that records transaction data in a shared manner. This new technology is considered destructive and can transfer many data-driven industries, including construction. On the other hand, as one of the necessary measures to ensure quality, progress, and safety, construction inspection records still...
Article
Trust has been acknowledged as an essential element of inter-organizational relationships, and it also affects the efficiency of work operations. Although the construction industry has been pursuing trust for a long time, trust is still lacking and fragile among stakeholders. Blockchain seems to provide a promising approach through which trust can...
Article
Blockchain technology has attracted the interest of the global construction industry for its potential to enhance the transparency, traceability, and immutability of construction data and enables collaboration and trust throughout the supply chain. However, such potential cannot be achieved without blockchain "oracles" needed to bridge the on-chain...
Article
Full-text available
Blockchain technology has been explored for governmental supervision of construction work (GSCW) due to its merits of traceability, immutability, and transparency. However, its decentralized nature is seemingly incompatible with GSCW, which is a type of centralized governance per se. This research aims to find a network topology with a proper level...
Article
By manufacturing housing products off-site and assembling on-site, modular construction can significantly improve the housing supply efficiency, particularly for high-density cities. However, off-site modular housing production (OMHP) supervision is currently problematic. The production parties are reluctant to provide detailed private data; Even w...
Article
Building Information Models (BIMs) and City Information Models (CIMs) have flourished in building and urban studies independently over the past decade. Semantic enrichment is an indispensable process that adds new semantics such as geometric, non-geometric, and topological information into existing BIMs or CIMs to enable multidisciplinary applicati...
