Construction Engineering Research Grant Composition Group[edit]

A repository for co-operative work, initially focussed on fine tuning of research proposals for funding by appropriate foundations and agencies. --Ian Kennedy 12:13, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

Possible Construction Engineering Themes, stated as research questions:

  • What is the value of a view? (Hedonic modelling to aid the town planning, property and construction industries)
  • Why is the construction project late, over-cost and of poor quality? (Reworking, Snag lists, communication, training, communication ...)
  • Why not the Intelligent Office Building, the Intelligent Factory Building, the Intelligent Hospital Building? (Leads to reduced Life-cycle costs, Green building)
  • Why are architects not designing for life-cycle costs? (?)

Possible agency to be approached for funding:[edit]
