How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

The Palestinian construction sector is one of the key economic sectors and is the main force motivating the national economy. However, it is complex and affected by many constraints and obstacles that influence its outcomes. Therefore, this research was conducted with the aims to survey the construction contracting problems in Palestine from the di...
The construction industry is one of the main sectors that provides important ingredients for the development of an economy. However, many projects experience extensive delays and thereby exceed initial time and cost estimates. Construction delay is considered to be one of the most recurring problems in the construction industry and it has an advers...
Cost and time are interdependent by their very nature. However, cost and time are generally treated in isolation both informally and within the terms of the contract. In reality, cost and time interact throughout the construction cycle. Thus, cost and time models and modelling systems must facilitate the integration of cost with time. Recognition m...
Cost and time models have been developed for road and bridge projects using resource significance analysis, which is in turn based on the 80/20 rule. The work packages in these models are designed to relate to site operations. They serve as the basis for measurement, estimating, planning, valuation and control in civil engineering projects. For def...
The search for new approaches to design-construction information integration through the use of computer-based systems is invariably hindered by the need to adopt appropriate representational schemes for the design information by several professions architects, structural engineers, service engineers, quantity surveyors, and by small groups of sub-...
