Today’s design professionals are faced with challenges on all fronts. They need not only to keep in step with rapid technological changes and the current revolution in design and construction processes, but to lead the industry. This means actively seeking to innovate through design research, raising the bar in building performance and adopting advanced technologies in their practice. In a constant drive to improve design processes and services, how is it possible to implement innovations? And, moreover, to assimilate them in such a way that design, methods and technologies remain fully integrated? Focusing on innovations in architecture, this book covers new materials and design methods, advances in computational design practices, innovations in building technologies and construction techniques, and the integration of research with design. Moreover, it discusses strategies for integrating innovation into design practices, risks and economic impacts. Through numerous case studies, it illustrates how innovations have been implemented on actual architectural projects, and how design and technical innovations are used to improve building performance, as well as design practices in cutting-edge architectural and engineering firms. Projects of all scales and building types are discussed in the book, ranging from small-scale installations, academic and commercial buildings to large-scale mixed-use, healthcare, civic, academic, scientific research and sports facilities.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2014 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 64.2, , language: English, abstract: Management of materials has over the years been a great problem to most firms in the construction industry. In construction project operations, there is always a tendency of mismanagement of materials by construction firms. As the size of the contract increases, however, so does the scale of activities concerning materials management. The aim of this research was therefore to investigate into materials management problems faced by construction firms in the Greater Accra Region. To achieve this aim, the following objectives were set out: To identify the problems in materials management practices by greater Accra firms, to identify the causes of these materials management problems, to identify proper ways of managing materials by construction firms on sites and to suggest ways of solving materials management problems by construction firms. The research instrument adopted was the use of questionnaires. Fifty-five (55) sets of questionnaires was distributed to various contractors. The sampling technique adopted was the snowball sampling technique. Quantity analysis approach was adopted for the analysis of the data which involved the use of frequency distribution tables and charts. The analysis of the data revealed that high project cost and delay were also some of the effects of improper materials management. Provisions of s...

In today's world, only the smartest survive. The competitive landscape is littered with graves of well-known firms whose revenues, profits and stock prices rose for decades until they suddenly imploded. In fast-changing business environments, firms must adapt their strategies and innovate to remain at the top. But many successful firms fail to do so. Instead, they succumb to inertia, hesitate, or stick blindly to their old strategies, until it is too late. The ability to adapt to change is a measure of intelligence; so why do firms demonstrate such low Strategic IQ? What causes inertia and why is it so deadly? How can leaders help their firms to act more intelligently? This book identifies the key sources of inertia – strategic, structural and huma – and provides practical advice on how they can be overcome to create smarter corporations. It is both a wake-up call for successful firms and a lifeline for firms struggling to succeed. To successful firms – beware! You may already be dead! To struggling firms – have hope! It is possible to pass powerful competitors by raising your strategic, structural and human IQ. Praise for Strategic IQ «Hard-hitting and stimulating, Wells' thesis carries a robust message that should make business leaders the world over sit up and think.» Archie Norman, Chairman of ITV, UK «Wells makes a compelling case for dramatic change.» Ron Sargent, CEO of Staples, USA

Richard Garber BIM Design. Realising the Creative Potential of Building Information Modelling

3841.21 руб.
Building information modelling (BIM) is revolutionising building design and construction. For architects, BIM has the potential to optimise their creativity while reducing risk in the design and construction process, thus giving them a more significant role in the building process. This book demonstrates how innovative firms are using BIM technologies to move design away from the utilitarian problems of construction, engaging them in a stunning new future in the built environment. Whereas recent books about BIM have tended to favour case-study analyses or instruction on the use of specific software, BIM Design highlights how day-to-day design operations are shaped by the increasingly generative and collaborative aspects of these new tools. BIM strategies are described as operations that can enhance design rather than simply make it more efficient. Thus this book focuses on the specific creative uses of information modelling at the operational level, including the creative development of parametric geometries and generative design, the evaluation of environmental performance and the simulation and scheduling of construction/fabrication operations. This book also engages BIM’s pragmatic efficiencies such as the conflict checking of building systems and the creation of bills of quantities for costing; and in so doing it demonstrates how BIM can make such activities collaborative. Throughout, projects are used to illustrate the creative application of BIM at a variety of scales. These buildings showcase work by fi rms executing projects all over the world: SHoP Architects and Construction (New York), Morphosis (Los Angeles), Populous (London), GRO Architects (New York), Reiser + Umemoto (New York), Gensler (Shanghai) and UNStudio (Amsterdam).

ARGE, in German construction industry an established form of partnership, becomes more and more important in acquiring and accomplishing construction projects.ARGE underlies the regulations of the German Partnership under Civil Law. Consequently the ARGE partners are jointly and several liable for the contract to produce a work with the principal. Thus the principal reaches fundamental advantages: He reduces his risk concerning insolvency of an ARGE partner, he increases competition and he gets services from one hand.Engineering firms, who want to participate in these projects, have to handle their capacities and risks. Engineering firms are not interested in participating in ARGE partnerships. There is no reason for voluntary sharing of liability. Engineering firms want to be responsible and liable only for services they accomplish. They do not want to share the responsibility and liability with other construction planners.In external relationship with the principal, ARGE partners could not change the jointly and several liability.Principals will not deal about limitation of ARGE partners' liability...

Liability for the design of a building or structure is of fundamental concern to construction professionals, design-build contractors, specialist sub-contractors, and lawyers. Although other texts cover a wide range of aspects of liability, only Cornes and Lupton’s Design Liability in Construction draws together all those matters that relate specifically to design. A number of factors have come together recently and are addressed in this significant update and rewrite of the 4th edition, including: popularity of design & build procurement partnering arrangements and early contractor involvement new standard forms of construction contract and appointment, and revisions to older forms technical innovations in construction collaborative working and BIM systems many well-publicised cases regarding design failures significant developments in the law of tort and professional liability the development of the single European market and increased provision of services overseas Together these factors create a new range of design liability issues which the construction professional has to face. Written for lawyers, architects, engineers, and contractors, the fifth edition of Design Liability in Construction will also serve as a useful text for masters level courses in engineering, surveying and construction law.

Master's Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 60.02, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, course: Msc Construction Management, language: English, abstract: To support in addressing this issue, this work was planned with the aim to recommend strategies for curbing ineffective management of safety on construction sites.The construction industry is inherently risky, with a substantial number of accidents. Moreover, most construction firms aim at completing projects on time, especially with different projects at hand thereby neglecting the safety aspect of the workers. In most Ghanaian construction companies, adequate concentration is not allocated to the areas of health and safety and this has been a great problem over the years in which Accra Metropolis is no exception. In order to achieve the said aim, the objectives set up include; to identify the possible causes of accident as a result of ineffective management of safety, to determine the level of accidents caused by ineffective management of safety at the construction sites and to identify strategies to curb ineffective management of safety at the construction sites. Survey questionnaires were administrated to five major construction companies in the Greater Accra Region in which the data collected was also analyzed with the Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) and the Relative Importance Index (RII) was also used in ranki...

This book provides an in-depth analysis of strategic positioning efforts of firms in the German consulting market. In his work, the author applies strategic group theory to the German management consulting industry, and provides an empirical test of the performance effects of alternative positioning strategies of management consulting firms. At the core is its empirical research, specifically the analysis of the "service expositions", through which consulting firms communicate the nature of their services to clients. In order to ascertain these service expositions, the author conducts content analysis of 233 consulting firms active in the German market. He then uses the findings in order to cluster the firms into distinct strategic groups and tests for associations between the positioning of firms within their respective group and their performance. Overall, the author finds evidence of three distinct strategic groups of consulting firms that operate in the German market, which he describes as "Standardized Solution Providers", "Functional Specialists" and "Functional Generalists". "Practitioners and industry observers are going to find this book uniquely helpful as it provides clarity on both the macro- and the micro-strategies of consulting firms active in Germany i. e., the overall service portfolio choices they make (which types of services to offer at all), and the specific communicative positioning of these service offerings vis-à-vis...

This volume not only illustrates the research that is being done in the area of human resources in entrepreneurial firms but it raisesmany issues that exemplify the complexity of the topic. It is not a case of small versus large firms. There are small established firms, smallstart-up firms and small high growth firms. As pointed out by Alvarez and Molloy these firms differ with established firms dealing with riskwhile high growth firms deal with uncertainty. These firms vary in ownership based on family ownership, ownership by founder, or sometype of privately held stock ownership. These firms also vary based on how they handle people issues: structure versus lack of structure; thetraditional HR functional approach versus the use of people management practices; person-job fit versus person- organization fit; ability andwork experience versus integrity and conscientiousness; work processes and bureaucracy versus agility and adaptability; tasks versus roles;in-house professionals versus reliance on third-party vendors; traditional pay versus variable pay; short-term orientation of incentives versuslong-term orientation of incentives; and many more.We challenge you to pursue this stream of research and to help not only develop theory and conceptual models and pursue empiricalresearch but to also disseminate your information in a way that will help practitioners and owners in all the small and high growth firms.

This survey investigates and evaluates the legal framework which an engineer faces when stepping into an ARGE partnership with other planning offices. ARGE, in the German construction industry an established form of partnership, becomes more and more important in acquiring and accomplishing construction projects.The ARGE underlies the regulations of the German Partnership under Civil Law; consequently, the ARGE partners are jointly and individually liable for the contract. Thus the principal of the overall project enjoys fundamental advantages: He reduces his risk should it come to an insolvency of an ARGE partner, he increases competition, and he gets services out of one hand. Engineering firms who want to participate in these projects have to handle their capacities and risks. Presently, many engineering firms are not interested in participating in ARGE partnerships as they see no reason for a voluntary sharing of liability and want to be responsible and liable only for services they performed. Therefore, engineering firms are interested in an ARGE agreement which divides the responsibilities and liabilities in consideration of the rendered services. In external discussions with principals, ARGE partner could not change the joint and individual liability. Principals will not deal with the limitation of ARGE partners' liabilities. However, other regulations could be defined in internal arrangements.Besides the law-related aspects, it is advisable to redefine other regula...

Eynon John The Design Manager's Handbook

5781.43 руб.
Design management as a recognised role in the built environment industry is relatively new, initially arising from the need for better co-ordination and delivery of design information from design teams to main contractors – particularly important as procurement routes involving contractor led design have become much more commonplace. The advent of design packages driven by specialist sub-contractors has also increased the need for co-ordination and management of the design process. With the growing complexity of construction projects, effective design management is increasingly central to project success. BIM, as it gains acceptance across the industry will undoubtedly have a huge impact on project delivery process and the role of the Design Manager. The CIOB Design Manager’s Handbook covers subjects such as design process and management tools, the role of the Design Manager, value management and innovation, procurement routes and implications, people dynamics, and factors that will affect the development of the Design Manager’s role in the future, including BIM. It will ensure Design Managers understand the processes, tools and skills that are required to be successful in the role, and will assist them in delivering real value to complex construction projects. Written for both the Design Manager practitioner and students on construction related degree courses, anyone interested in construction based design management will also find the book useful.

Corporate clients are demanding more value from their external advisors, and consolidating their business around a smaller number of firms. These trends are forcing a variety of service providers—from consulting firms to large banks—to confront a series of difficult challenges: How do we create an ‘all-for-one, one-for-all’ culture in which the whole is greater than the sum-of-the-parts and we succeed in leveraging our global network to deliver value to clients?" How do we mobilize the right people, resources, and ideas—across a multitude of organizational and geographic boundaries—into each and every client relationship?" How do we evolve from a trusted advisor to a trusted partner and build multi-year, institutional relationships? All for One answers these questions with an innovative and comprehensive model for developing enduring, institutional client relationships—what Andrew Sobel refers to as Level 6 Trusted Client Partnerships. It offers readers ten specific strategies that are thoroughly supported by case studies, best practices from leading firms, and implementation tools. The individual professional is principally responsible for five of these strategies, while the firm—the institution—must support and drive the other five. When you successfully execute against all ten of these building blocks, you develop long-term, professional-client partnerships that provide great value to the client and high levels of personal satisfaction and profitability for the service provider.

The construction and operation of highways has a significant impact on the environment. While such impact is impossible to avoid, modern highways are constructed and landscaped to minimise these impacts as far as possible. Good landscaping minimises the impact on those living or working close to the highway, while at the same time regenerating the natural landscape disturbed during construction. Using as its background the successful landscape design of the Nanjing-Hangzhou Expressway in Jiangsu Province, China, which opened to traffic in 2007, Highway Landscape Design includes reference to all aspects of the landscaping of highways, including interchanges, embankments, central reservations, bridges, service and toll station areas, and drainage systems. Appropriate consideration is given to the negative impact on the surrounding environment during the process of construction and it discusses the ecological evaluation and conservation strategy for the highway route. China is in some respects at the forefront of highway landscape design as a result of rapid growth and development coupled with the financial resources to implement major infrastructure works, and the concepts, technologies and methods developed for this Expressway provide valuable experience for sustainable development strategies for such infrastructure.

Jan Eldring Porter.s (1980) Generic Strategies, Performance and Risk

9227 руб.
Porter's (1980) book Competitive Strategy has received a great deal of attention in the strategic management literature. Here Porter claims that competitive strategy is the search for a favorable competitive position in the industry, which can erode or improve, depending on a firm's choice of strategy. He derived a conceptual typology of three generic strategies that has already become a classic among scholars. They are cost leadership, differentiation and focus strategies. Just recently Michael Raynor (2007) challenged Porter's widely accepted typology, by including another dimension in the discussion that previously did not find consideration: risk. He claims that firms that execute pure strategies are much more exposed to corporate risk than firms that execute hybrid strategies. Two arguments support his view. First Porter's and other studies include what is called a "survivor bias", meaning that firms that went bankrupt during the investigation (with a pure strategy) do not play a role in the analysis. Second firms that have hybrid strategies are much more flexible when market preferences shift and are therefore less exposed to strategic uncertainty. Raynor's work is a valuable extension to the strategic management literature that leads to an assessment of strategic choice on at least two dimensions: profitability and risk. The contribution of the study is then twofold. First Porter's typology is tested with German data. Secondly Raynor'...
