  • Balanced approach for tendering practice at the pre-contract stage: the UK
           practitioner’s perspective

    • Authors: Seoung-Wook Whang, Sohrab Donyavi, Roger Flanagan, Sangyong Kim
      Pages: 338– - 338–
      Abstract: Tender documents often lack clarity and are incomplete, making it difficult for contractors to appropriately price projects. A general view is that the quality of tender documents has declined, which has affected the bidding strategies of contractors. However, the academic literature has focused mainly upon the views of contractors. To obtain a more balanced view of tendering practices, in-depth interviews were conducted with 10 practitioners (client, consultant, and contractor) who are involved in a common project at the same time in the UK construction industry. The contractor was satisfied that the quality of tender documents had been consistent. By contrast, both the client and the consultant agreed that the quality of tender documents is an ongoing issue. During the study it was revealed that tendering practice is influenced by the relationship between stakeholders or the unbalanced access to information rather than the accuracy and analysis of tender documentations. Tendering practices and proposed efficient ways of improving the bidding environment were examined. Using the awareness of other project stakeholder’s perspectives, this study can help the contractor to establish suitable tendering practices, and to mitigate tender risk at the bidding stage, which could effectively be implemented in the UK construction industry.

  • Cybersecurity assessment of BIM/CDE design environment using cyber
           assessment framework

    • Authors: Žiga Turk, Muammer Semih Sonkor, Robert Klinc
      Pages: 349– - 349–
      Abstract: Digitalisation of the construction industry is exposing it to cybersecurity risks. All phases of construction can be affected. Particularly vulnerable are information-intensive phases such as building design and building operation. Construction is among the last industries that are discovering its cybersecurity risks and can rely on frameworks developed for other contexts. In this paper, we evaluate the cybersecurity risks of the design phase of construction using the Cyber Assessment Framework from the National Cybersecurity Centre (NCSC) of the UK. The goal of this study is twofold. First, to examine cybersecurity risks themselves, and second, to evaluate the applicability of the NCSC framework for construction to see if and how construction is specific. The analysis shows that the cybersecurity risks follow the information impact curve that has been motivating the introduction of Building Information Modelling (BIM). The framework is applicable but is weak in addressing the specifics of the construction industrial ecosystem, which involves a multitude of dynamically connected actors, their overlapping authorities, and conflicting motives. It is suggested that a specialized constructionrelated framework should be developed.

  • Causes and effects of poor communication in the construction industry in
           the MENA region

    • Authors: Akram Suleiman
      Pages: 365– - 365–
      Abstract: The construction industry in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) faces many challenges throughout the project’s lifecycle; on top of these challenges is poor communication which occasionally results in project failure or at least time and cost overruns. A range of steps and methods must be taken to minimize the causes and effects of poor communication to enhance communication. The main aim of the study is to exploring poor communication in MENA construction industry and defining the causes and effects of poor communication from the perspective of consultants, clients, and contractors in small and medium enterprises in a developed region like MENA. Construction professionals from different project parties were asked to complete a questionnaire listing 32 causes and 21 effects of poor communication identified from the literature. The model was validated by Structural Equation Modelling SEM in terms of convergent and discriminant validities. The results revealed, that out of 54 cause and effect factors of poor communication, only 18 factors were retained. These causes and effects were ranked using the relative importance index RII. Results showed that all causes and effects are highly important, with RII above 0.6. The most important causes of poor communication are lack of communication procedure and training, followed by lack of adequate representation for project stakeholders. However, the least important cause of poor communication is a lack of understanding among the construction parties. Conversely, the most acute effects of poor communication are misinterpretation, followed by conflict among construction parties. However, the least important effect of poor communication is a late response to the disaster. Results and recommendations derived from this study represent the vital need of the MENA construction industry to focus on enhancing the current status of communication. The commitment of all project stakeholders to the drawn recommendations regarding the causes of poor communication will undoubtedly limit or reduce the effects of poor communication. Construction firms looking to improve their performance may benefit from the developed model.

  • An evidence-based risk decision support approach for metro tunnel
           construction

    • Authors: Yifan Guo, Junjie Zheng, Rongjun Zhang, Youbin Yang
      Pages: 377– - 377–
      Abstract: The risk-informed decision-making of metro tunnel project is often faced with the problem of inadequate utilization of available information. In order to address the epistemic uncertainty problem caused by insufficient utilization of information in decision-making, this paper proposes a risk decision support approach for metro tunnel construction based on Continuous Time Bayesian Network (CTBN) technique. CTBN can factor the state space of variables in tunnel projects and perform evidence-based reasoning, which enables the diverse information of expert opinions, project-specific parameters, historical data and engineering anomalies to be the evidence to support decision-making. A concise CTBN model development method based on Dynamic Fault Trees is presented to replace the cumbersome model learning process. The proposed approach can utilize multi-source information as evidence to provide multi-form decision support both in the pre-construction stage and construction stage of the tunnel construction project, and the results can support the decisions on judging the acceptability of the risk, developing response strategies for risk factors and diagnosing the causes of the hazardous event. A case study on the water leakage risk of tunnel construction in China is presented to illustrate the feasibility of the approach. The case study shows that the approach can assist in making informed decisions, so as to improve the engineering safety.

  • Study on seismic response of a new staggered story isolated structure
           considering SSI effect

    • Authors: Dewen Liu, Liping Li, Yafei Zhang, Lihao Chen, Feng Wan, Fan Yang
      Pages: 397– - 397–
      Abstract: The new staggered story isolated structure is a new type of seismic isolated structure developed from base isolated structure and inter-story isolated structure. In order to explore the seismic response of the new staggered story isolated structure considering the soil-structure interaction (SSI), the model of a new staggered story isolated structure considering SSI effect is established to analyze the nonlinear dynamic time-history response under rare earthquakes, and the comparison between hard soil and soft soil was carried out. Results show that the stiffness of the new staggered story isolated structure reduced, the modal period extended and the seismic response reduced by considering the SSI effect, the softer the site soil, the more obvious those changes are. Meanwhile, the shear force and the damage of the core tube decreases, while the shear force and the damage of the frame increases, the shear force transfers from the core tube to the frame. Additionally, the energy absorption of the seismic isolated bearings at the frame reduced, the energy absorption of the seismic isolated bearings at the core tube increased, the softer the site soil, the more obvious the trend is.

  • Machine learning for text classification in building management systems

    • Authors: Jose Joaquin Mesa-Jiménez, Lee Stokes, QingPing Yang, Valerie N. Livina
      Pages: 408– - 408–
      Abstract: In building management systems (BMS), a medium building may have between 200 and 1000 sensor points. Their labels need to be translated into a naming standard so they can be automatically recognised by the BMS platform. The current industrial practices often manually translate these points into labels (this is known as the tagging process), which takes around 8 hours for every 100 points. We introduce an AI-based multi-stage text classification that translates BMS points into formatted BMS labels. After comparing five different techniques for text classification (logistic regression, random forests, XGBoost, multinomial Naive Bayes and linear support vector classification), we demonstrate that XGBoost is the top performer with 90.29% of true positives, and use the prediction confidence to filter out false positives. This approach can be applied in sensors networks in various applications, where manual free-text data pre-processing remains cumbersome.
