Construction waste can be divided into both physical and non-physical waste. Physical waste refers to all solid construction materials waste, while the non-physical waste refers to waste that accrued during the construction process and raises time and cost overruns. Improper waste management may lead to cost overrun. Therefore, the management of waste should be considered as early as the pre-contract stage. This study aims to highlight waste and wasted material in construction projects, causes, and sources. In addition, there are different strategies suggested by the research to help project managers to manage waste materials in their projects. Here are two types of methods to reduce waste materials in construction projects: planning and controlling. Planning includes the materials procurement, design project plan and site planning. In contrast, material transportation and handle, security and storing, waste accounting, documentation, safety, educational, training, and equipment maintenance are all examples of controlling. Material waste planning is critical for reducing or reusing waste in construction projects.
In any country, identifying high-intensity accident hotspots is essential in establishing effective techniques to minimize high-intensity accident sites. Because of Jordan’s continual population growth in recent years, vehicle ownership has grown, leading to an increase in accident rates. According to many researches, Jordan suffers from damages caused by traffic accidents. As a result, the current study focuses on finding the black spots in selected Jordanian localities as a first step toward identifying the strategies to minimize traffic accidents in Jordan. To achieve this objective, the researcher started their investigation by collecting the accidents that occurred in Jordan during three years in 30 departments in Amman. The study area includes 30 segments in seven intersections in Amman city. Based on the collected data, the case study traffic sites were ranked based on their safety performance using several methods: accident rates, accident frequency, and accident severity index. The study's findings revealed that the high safety segment in the study area is from al-zamakhshre to interchange al-shfaa. In contrast, the high black spots are found from Jordan University to major streets. Results confirmed that identifying the high black spots segments contributes to reducing expected traffic accidents.
This study aims at developing models to predict the operating speeds of passenger cars on horizontal curves of rural multi-lane highways. A total of 16 compound curves and 35 simple curves located on two major rural multi-lane divided highways in Jordan were selected for the study. Continuous speed data were collected using an affordable (low cost) speedometer application loaded on smartphones equipped with Global Positioning System (GPS) technology. A stepwise multiple linear regression analysis at a 95% confidence interval has been performed to develop the speed prediction models. The obtained model at the beginning of the compound curve indicated that the 85th percentile speed at the midpoint of approach independent tangent and the deflection angle of the first curve is found to be statistically significant to predict operating speed. At both points of the compound curve and end of the curve, the significant variables were the radius of the first curve and the total length of the compound curve. For simple curves, the obtained models indicated that the curve radius and the 85th percentile speed at the midpoint of approach independent tangents were positively correlated with the operating speed at beginning of curve, while the degree of curvature was negatively correlated with the operating speed at both middle and end of the curve.Copyright © 2010 Praise Worthy Prize S.r.l. - All rights reserved.
Construction sector considered as an important sector in most countries, which needs special attention since it is an important part of the growth of the local economy in most countries. The most important stage in construction project is cost estimation process. It is considered as a key of any construction project where it helps the client to decide to either proceed or not with the project. The cost estimation should be well prepared by the quantity surveyor or financial controller prior to the commencement of the project. In order to prepare sound cost estimation, the major factors that may affect the cost estimation should be identified. This paper reviews the factors affect the cost estimation in construction project in different countries namely New Zealand, Nigeria, Peninsular Malaysia and Gaza Strip. The result of the current paper revealed that the most significant factors affect the cost estimation in construction projects found in most of the countries are limited time to prepare estimate due to dateline, inaccuracy and unreliable cost information, unclear detail drawings and specifications, inexperience estimator, incomplete cost information, construction type and location of project.
Generally, by review causes and issues related to V.O in construction projects, the aim of this paper is toinvestigate the real cause of variation orders in its root stage, This paper investigates the most significant causescontribute to the variation orders in the construction of building projects in Jordan, data was collected fromquestionnaire survey which is based on the literature reviews.The data were analyzed by using mean score method and rank to formulate the findings. The results fromquestionnaire survey revealed three most significant causes variation orders which are:Errors and omission in design delay in completion and increase project cost Change in specification by ownersThe finding concluded that employer us the main originator of the variation orders and suggested that ownershould have adequate planning and recourses before initiating a project in order to avoid variation order duringthe construction stage.
Construction sector is one of the major drivers in jordan economy to many sectors related directly or indirectly to construction sector. Construction projects require a range of services that provide jobs for a large fraction of population depends on. Recently, the construction industry economy is facing many challenges that caused slow down. Therefore, a deep analysis for the construction industry is needed. This research focuses on the understanding of Over Run (OR) situation in building projects in Jordan. It is designed broadly in two parts. Part one aimed at establishing critical issues of OR and their causes in building projects in Jordan. This part involved four stages; problem definition, literature review, case study. From the analysis, we identified that overruns as major challenge that often cause additional cost burden on projects budgets.
Variation order is a major challenge facing the construction industry. It can be defined as changes to the contract documents in the original agreement. It might be a change in quality, or quantity or any forms of change that affect the project. Several researchers in Jordan have inspected the variation orders sources, and a variety of clarifications have been recommended to minimize their causes, nevertheless variation order kept hardly influencing the construction industry. Though, Building Information Modelling (BIM) as a tool to minimize the variation order effects in Jordan has not been examined. Moreover, researchers confirmed a knowledge gap, in terms of BIM awareness through Jordanian construction industry. Literature indicates that the use of BIM in the Jordanian construction industry is lagging behind. The aim of this study is to develop a BIM framework to minimize the variation orders causes on the governmental construction project in Jordan. To meet that aim, a comprehensive literature review was conducted in terms of BIM capability to reduce V.O. impact on construction project around the world. Furthermore, the researcher designed a questionnaire to collect the data required in regard of VO causes and the BIM capability to address this issue. The response rate was around 70% (105/150). The questionnaire answers were analyzed descriptively and statistically by Partial Least Squares (PLS), and Relative Importance Index (RII). The causes of variation order in the Jordanian construction industry were further categorized into four main groups, namely client-related causes, contractor causes, consultant causes and causes arising from unforeseen circumstances of the project. The outcomes of this research (dependent on a relative importance index (RII)) indicate that the most frequent causes of variation orders in Jordan construction industry were, inaccurate quantity take-off, unskilled labourers, missing material specifications, logistic delays, internal politics, shortage of equipment and tools, technology changes, shortage of human and equipment Resource, absence of construction manuals and procedures, unavailability of the required labour skills, change of scope or plans by owners. It was also found that 50% of these causes were initiated by consultants, 20 % by clients and unforeseen variations, while 10 % only were initiated by contractor. Moreover, it was found that BIM Design Applications, Facility Operations Simulation, Exploration Design Scenarios, BIM Design Detection and BIM Quantity Take-off and Cost Estimation were found to be significantly capable to minimize VO. The research concluded that there is a significant positive relationship between the use of BIM applications and minimizing in the variation order in Jordanian construction industry. This means that the variation orders will decrease significantly if BIM applications is used and supports a case for using BIM as a means of reducing the variation order in the Jordanian construction industry. Finally, focus group workshop was used to validate this framework. Focus group workshop was used to investigate the relationship between the causes of variation order and the functions and features of BIM, which validated the positive effects of using BIM in terms of minimizing the variation order by minimizing the main causes. This research introduced a helpful contribution through a detailed BIM design application framework to minimize variation order, the study recommended to use this framework to solve many problems related to construction industry.
Jordan construction industry experience challenges that reduce the number of construction industryorganizations to121organization in 2016 compared to 148 in 2015 based on the Central Bank of Jordan annualreport. According to the literature the main causes identified by researchers include poor design, poorscheduling and planning and the fragmental nature of the industry. To address these challenges, the adoptingof Building Information Modelling (BIM) is proposed. This study presents a strategic plan to adopt BIM bythe private sector of the Jordan construction industry. Through wide and comprehensive survey (quantitativeapproach) the findings shows that the adoption of BIM in the Jordanian private construction section is subjectedto many factors such as the top management support, spreading awareness by the construction associations andgovernmental national BIM training centres.
Building information modeling (BIM) is one of the most impressive recent developments in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry. Using BIM technology, gives you a 3 D virtual model of a building digitally constructed. This operation called a building information model, can be used for planning, design, construction, and operation of the project. It (AEC) parts to have a clear sight for any potential design. In this paper, we present an over view for BIM, case studies for researchers. The findings of this study concluded that there’sa great benefits provided by using BIM, and this usage will be reflected on the time and the cost of the projects.
Many case studies have been conducted on the adoption strategies of building information modelling (BIM). This paper is aimed at exploring the best strategy to implement BIM in the Jordanian construction industry. The contractors can use this strategy to assess how ready they are to adopt building information modelling. To achieve the target, a comprehensive literature was expanded in two frameworks, firstly, Jordan construction industry to understand the current conditions for the construction practice and highlight related challenges. The second framework was building information modelling, the concept, adoption conditions, and best practices to pick the best adoption strategy. To conceptualize the nominated theoretical adoption strategies, a qualitative approach was followed, and 15 semi-structured interviews were carried out with the largest construction companies in the Jordanian construction industry. Reliability and validity checks were performed at three levels; A focus group workshop consists of four construction experts who recommended adjustments inregard of culture’ components in the theoretical strategies, The second level of validity where a questionnaire sent to 50 respondents work for a construction organizations, secondly the results were analysed by the structured equation modelling technique, the first hypotheses was rejected leading to a second adjustment inregard of the conceptual framework. To perform the final validity check, a discussion with three major industry players in Jordan took place in order to finalise the conceptual strategies framework. Findings showed that the best strategy to adopt BIM among construction companies in Jordan is still unclear, so many barriers and challenges are facing BIM adoption such as, but not limited to, Lack of government support , BIM unawareness, the absence of BIM training centres and specialists , resistance to change and cost.
