Construction Delays

Understanding Them Clearly, Analyzing Them Correctly

 

2nd ed. Butterworth-Heinemann, 2009.

ISBNs 9781856176774

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): Delays in construction projects are frequently expensive, since there is usually a construction loan involved which charges interest, management staff dedicated to the project whose costs are time dependent, and ongoing inflation in wage and material prices. Many techniques are used to analyze delays. Some of these methods have inherent weaknesses and should be avoided. This book points out the shortcomings of these faulty methods and explains how a delay analysis should be performed. It then describes specifically how the analysis is done with CPM schedules. A explanation of delays and delay damages, presented in a straightforward, accessible manner, should be useful to public and private owners, construction managers, general contractors, subcontractors, designers, suppliers, and attorneys whose work involves them in the construction industry. The discussion will include subtleties of the process, such as shifts in the critical path, and non-critical delays. The subject of damages is covered in detail, including the major categories of extended field overhead and unabsorbed home office overhead. Likewise, the damages suffered by the owner, either actual or liquidated, are also explained. Finally, a chapter is devoted to managing the risk of delays and time extensions from the viewpoints of the various parties to a construction project. A discussion of early completion schedules and constructive acceleration is also included.

In this new ediion, all chapters are updated to reflect the changes in the construction field since the first edition published over l6 years ago. The 2nd edition includs over 40% more information such as new methods for analyzing delays with examples of the proper approach. The author also includes a new chapter on risk managment which focuses on the delay-related risks of the various parties in a construction project.

Explains the different categories of delays
Addresses the concept of concurrency and also non-critical delays
Discusses the more common approaches used for measuring and analyzing delays and the strengths and weaknesses associated with them
Prevention of Time-Related Delay Problems

Construction Process Planning and Management

An Owner's Guide to Successful Projects

 

Butterworth-Heinemann, 2009.

ISBNs 9781856175487

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): By their very nature, construction projects can create seemingly endless opportunities for conflict. Written by a best selling author with over 40 years of experiences in the construction and general contracting business, Construction Process Planning and Management provides you with the necessary tools to save time and money on your construction project. In this book, Sid Levy provides valuable advice for avoiding or working through the common problems that are a result of the long-term nature of construction projects, failure to select a ?project delivery system? appropriate to the project, incomplete drawing and specifications, unrealistic scheduling, poor communication and coordination among participants, and inadequate contract administration. From project genesis, through design development to contractor and contract selection, on to construction oversight, punch list and successful project close-out, this book will point out those pitfalls to avoid and offer practical advice at every step along the way.

Administer the general construction process including solicitation of contractor's qualifications (pre-qualify bidders), comparative analysis of bid packages, recommendation for contract award, contract document negotiation and documentation of job change orders.

Provide Project Planning and on-site management and coordination of all construction projects.

Ensure compliance of building construction rules and regulations and collaborate with chief engineers to monitor quality of construction.

Conduct technical/plan review of construction documents and submit written responses identifying required corrections or changes.

Design, implement and oversee Company standards for construction policies, practices and processes.

Corrosion of Steel in Concrete Structures

 

Woodhead Publishing, 2016.

ISBNs 9781782423812

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

Corrosion of reinforcing steel is now recognized as the major cause of degradation of concrete structures in many parts of the world. Despite this, infrastructure expenditure is being unreasonably decreased by sequestration and the incredible shrinking discretionary budget. All components of our infrastructure including highways, airports, water supply, waste treatment, energy supply, and power generation require significant investment and are subjected to degradation by corrosion, which significantly reduces the service life, reliability, functionality of structures and equipment, and safety. Corrosion of Steel in Concrete Structures provides a comprehensive review of the subject, in addition to recent advances in research and technological developments, from reinforcing materials to measurement techniques and modelling.

This book contains not only all the important aspects in the field of corrosion of steel reinforced concrete but also discusses new topics and future trends. Part One of the book tackles theoretical concepts of corrosion of steel in concrete structures. The second part moves on to analyse the variety of reinforcing materials and concrete, including stainless steel and galvanized steel. Part Three covers measurements and evaluations, such as electrochemical techniques and acoustic emission. Part Four reviews protection and maintenance methods, whilst the final section analyses modelling, latest developments and future trends in the field.

The book is essential reading for researchers, practitioners and engineers who are involved in materials characterisation and corrosion of steel in concrete structures.

  • Provides comprehensive coverage on a broad range of topics related to the corrosion of steel bars in concrete
  • Discusses the latest measuring methods and advanced modeling techniques
  • Reviews the range of reinforcing materials and types of concrete

Critical Excitation Methods in Earthquake Engineering

 

Elsevier Science Ltd, 2007.

ISBNs 9780080453095

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): Since the occurrence of earthquakes and their properties are very uncertain even with the present knowledge, it is too difficult to define reasonable design ground motions especially for important buildings. In the seismic resistant design of building structures, the concept of ‘performance-based design’ has become a new paradigm guaranteeing the maximum satisfaction of building owners. The quality and reliability of the performance-based design certainly depend on the scientific rationality of design ground motions. In order to overcome this problem, a new paradigm has to be posed. To the author’s knowledge, the concept of 'critical excitation' and the structural design based upon this concept can become one of such new paradigms. This book introduces a new probabilistic and energy-based critical excitation approach to overcome several problems in the scientific and rational modelling of ground motions. The author hopes that this book will help the development of new seismic-resistant design methods of buildings for such unpredicted or unpredictable ground motions.

- First comprehensive book for critical excitation methods
- Including updated, cutting-edge research
- Applicable to other worst-case analysis problems
- Including comprehensive review of critical excitation methods
- Including verification by comprehensive recorded ground motions
