Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


The management of space on construction projects is a key function of construction managers. A planning model has been developed for multi-story building construction to help develop sequence plans for interior and perimeter finish work that minimize work space interference problems. The Construction Space Planning Model provides a method to characterize the spatial needs of construction activities into recognizable patterns. These patterns provide a formal representation of space need over time which can be utilized during the development of construction sequences. Results of limited applications of this planning model on four case study projects are presented here to demonstrate the use of work space patterns in the identification of spatial interference problems. Practical applications of this research on space planning and construction sequence planning are presented.
