Construction involves a variety of activities, resources, tools and techniques. Many of these activities are related and dependent on each other to the point that delay in one can result in an increase in the overall cost and time of the project.
This research project aims to investigate the dependencies between different activities and the extent of consequent impacts on other activities and the project.
The expected research activities for this project are:
- review of literature for activities and resources involved in construction
- interview with construction managers to validate and adjust the outcome of the literature review
- identification of the dependencies between different construction activities.
As a result of this project, we expect to complete a report and, potentially, submit publications related to our research.
You may be able to apply for a research scholarship in our annual scholarship round.
