Model of evaluation of sustainability performance in building projects integrating Lean, through the Delphi method
This article presents a review of the literature of the main studies that address the implementation of Lean principles and environmental sustainability management and proposes a model for evaluating sustainable management performance in building projects where Lean tools are implemented.
Sustainability performance evaluation in building projects by integrating Lean and sustainable management using the Delphi method
This research paper aims to contribute to the improvement of sustainable management of Peruvian buildings throughout the project lifecycle by integrating the Lean Construction philosophy and sustainability concepts through the Delphi method.
The Operation and Maintenance (O&M) stage is the most expensive phase during the life cycle of a building. Therefore, it is necessary to study the interaction between Lean principles and Building Information Modeling(BIM) Functionalities in the building during O&M phase to optimize resources.
The construction industry has been identified as an industry that can help in the achievement of environmental sustainability. The results of this study reveals that respondents are of the opinion that adoption of Lean Construction Practices (LCPs) in building can help in the achievement of...
Despite its high potential, the building's sector lags behind in reducing its energy demand. Tremendous savings can be achieved by deploying building management services during operation, however, the manual deployment of these services needs to be undertaken by experts and it is a tedious, time...
Lean awareness in Australian construction: investigating the extent of Lean adoption across Australian construction sectors
The purpose and aim of this paper is to quantitatively explore the presence, extent and awareness of lean construction principles within the Australian construction industry, as a point of reference for further study into adoption and implementation rates.
This strategy provides urban overheating mitigation recommendations to support the strategic planning of Sydney 2050 based on in-depth research conducted by the Cooperative Research Centre for Low Carbon Living (CRCLCL) and the University of New South Wales (UNSW).
The effect of building facades on outdoor microclimate – dependence model development using terrestrial thermography and multivariate analysis
This paper describes ground-based thermal infrared (TIR) data collection and the development of a multivariate regression model to predict brightness surface temperature from thermal images. The statistical model estimates surface temperature regressed against thermal image red, green and blue (RGB) values with high predictive strength...
In 2015 the New Zealand (NZ) government gifted $11.7 million to the Cook Islands for Stage 1 of the redevelopment of a national college in celebration of the Cook Islands 50 years of self-governance in free association with New Zealand. This report evaluates the first...
This document is a component of the CRC for Low Carbon Living Closing the Loop project. It provides an overview of existing data around building energy performance in Australia to guide the selection of building typologies to be included into the research. This document also...
