Article
Full-text available
After realizing the serious environmental problems caused by current linear economic model, designers, researchers and policy makers around the world started to look into the possibilities of a more sustainable model-circular economy. And the construction industry is no exception to this change. In recent years, not only in Europe, circular economy...

The strength of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in achieving sustainable buildings is well recognized by the global construction industry. However, current understanding of the state-of-the-art green BIM research is still limited. In particular, a focus study on how BIM contribute to green building design through building performance analysis (...

The building industry is blamed for consuming enormous natural resources and creating massive solid waste worldwide. In response to this, the concept of circular economy (CE) has gained much attention in the sector in recent years. Many pilot building projects that implemented CE concepts started to appear around the world, including Taiwan. Howeve...

The construction industry is a big contributor to the world’s natural resource consumption and waste. Circular economy is a model to reduce both the amount of new raw materials used during the construction stage and the waste produced at the building's end of life. This research uses a BIM model of the pilot circular project in Taiwan to evaluate t...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In 2020, 8 research groups from civil engineering, construction management, computer-aided engineering, transportation planning, water conservancy, earthquake prevention, ecological conservation, database management, and urban planning, networked to develop a main project, "Decision Making Support Platform for Digital Governance of Sustainable City...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Half of the global population lives in cities, and it is still increasing as people are moving to cities in search of better education, job opportunities, and so on. The existing infrastructures of the cities are being stretched beyond their capacity and requirements for well-organized urban environment and efficient urban management are rising. Ur...

Timber has long been used in the human building industry. With recent groundbreaking technologies and urgent calls for a lower carbon built environment, timber construction has become more industrial and popular globally. Nevertheless, it still faces many design-related difficulties and project management challenges. Building Information Modeling (...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Energy consumption by the building sector accounts for a considerable amount globally, and this number is increasing due to more extreme weather events and growing demand for energy services. To analyze and predict the patterns of building energy consumption, researchers have been adopting artificial neural networks in recent years. Weather data ar...
Conference Paper

Transforming to a circular built environment creates opportunities to alleviate issues on resource consumption and global greenhouse gas (GHG) emission worldwide. Construction projects have started to integrate circular concepts in the design phase for a better built environment in Taiwan. Building Information Modeling (BIM), which provides qualita...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Circular economy is a concept used to describe an economic system based on the reuse, recycling, recovery, and reduction of materials and products. In Taiwan, Taisugar Circular Village is the first housing project designed to implement the circular economy concept with a strong emphasis on renewable sources of energy. Following this focus, this stu...
Chapter
Modern people spend approximately up to 90% of their time indoors. Moreover, building operational phase contributes to more environmental impact (e.g. energy use and carbon emission) than other phases. Hence, proper building management is critical to the welfare of human beings and mother nature. And occupant behavior is crucial information for bui...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper proposes a BIM-enabled method that assists in designing green plantation with a more realistic estimation of CO2 capture than the current methods. For example, Taiwan’s building code provides an evaluation method for estimating the CO2 capture of green plants. However, this simple manual calculation does not take two key factors into acc...

Background Today, the architectural, engineering, construction, and operation (AECO) industry is motivated to employ graduates educated about Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools, techniques, and processes, which help them to better integrate visualizations and data into their projects. In line with today’s AECO industry necessities and govern...
Conference Paper
Design coordination is one of the major challenges in the design phase of an Architecture, Engineering, Construction & Operation (AECO) project life cycle. Improper design coordination may cause construction errors, reworks, material wastage, additional change orders, time, cost overruns and so on. Hence, it is vital to reduce the design warnings a...
Conference Paper
Today, Building Information Modeling (BIM) has been widely explored and embraced in more than sixty countries. Globally, BIM players in policy, technology and process fields are significantly contributing towards BIM research with several directions for improving the building design, construction and operation process. Our study is for critical ass...
Conference Paper
Delivery of green building (GB) is of major importance and has become a great challenge in Taiwan Architectural, Engineering, Construction and Operation (AECO) industry today. However, limited research on adoption of new decision making processes for delivering GB projects causes difficulty for project stakeholders to realize the value of GB. In ad...
Thesis
Full-text available
Taiwan Green Building Evaluation System EEWH started in 1999 and included scoring and grading system in 2005,resulting 1687 green building classified certifications till 2011. In order to enhance the rationality and the discrimination of the Green Building Rating System in Taiwan, this study carried further analysis.
