Forecasting the final budget at different phases of the design-build process is one of the most challenging aspects of capital construction project management. Predicting the construction budget is critical to ensuring the success of the project and avoiding delays and cost overruns. This paper presents data-driven machine learning models to predic...
Building Information Modeling (BIM) has gained a lot of traction in Nepal lately due to many AEC firms’ desire to improve their productivity. This research explores the current state and potential of Building Information Modeling in the Nepalese context. The main objective of this research was to gain a holistic view of the digital design and const...
There has been a growing interest in adopting autonomous robots to perform routine tasks in facilities management. The goal of facility management is to ensure that the facility performs to design standards. Currently, the cost of maintenance and operations of a facility over its life cycle is often more than the initial cost of construction. One o...
