              Preventing Workplace Incidents in Construction: Data Mining and Analytics Applications
               

              Preventing Workplace Incidents in Construction: Data Mining and Analytics Applications (Hardback)

              The construction industry is vital to any national economy; it is also one of the most susceptible to workplace incidents. The unacceptably high rates of incidents in construction have huge socio-economic consequences for the victims, their families and friends, co-workers, emplo...yers and society at large. Construction safety researchers have introduced numerous strategies, models and tools through scientific inquiries involving primary data collection and analyses. While these efforts are commendable, there is a huge potential to create new knowledge and predictive models to improve construction safety by utilising already existing data about workplace incidents. In this new book, Imriyas Kamardeen argues that more sophisticated approaches need to be deployed to enable improved analyses of incident data sets and the extraction of more valuable insights, patterns and knowledge to prevent work injuries and illnesses. The book aims to apply data mining and analytic techniques to past workplace incident data to discover patterns that facilitate the development of innovative models and strategies. Thereby improving work health, safety and wellbeing in construction and curtailing the high rate of incidents. It is essential reading for researchers and professionals in construction, health and safety and anyone interested in data analytics.

              The last three decades have seen the evolution of Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) and Relationship Contracting (RC) as alternative procurement approaches to traditional methods of delivering public infrastructure. The potential for growth in these new forms of procurement has ...led to an on-going debate on the nature of requirements, particularly in terms of policy development, encouraging private investment and value for money. A key argument for Governments to procure projects using PPPs and RC is that the process delivers better value for all the stakeholders, including the community and asset end-users. This wide-ranging study of such crucial procurement issues includes international historical context, collaboration and risk management, with a focus on sustainable procurement approaches. The international significance of PPPs and RC procurement is reinforced with case study examples from the UK, Europe, North America, South Africa and the Asia-Pacific. It features cutting-edge research from around the world on subjects such as: Reviews and reflection of the PPP approach Project Alliancing Implementation of RC in developing countries Changes in procurement policy Value for money, collaboration and stakeholder involvement Growth and emergence of PPPs in Asia Risk management Including contributions from some of the world's most prominent academics and practitioners in this field, it is a crucial guide to the strategic choices governments now face for the provision of infrastructure, between using `public' or `private' mechanisms, or a combination of the two.

              This book presents an extensive study on the extant constructs of corruption in infrastructure-related projects and aims to contribute towards the determination and elimination of its incidence and prevalence in the infrastructure projects. The book conducts a comprehensive exami...nation of the various determining factors of corruption that negatively affect the procurement process and, in the end, result in cost and time overruns. The authors present an in-depth understanding of how the identified determining factors of corruption can be addressed. Thus, it is intended to broaden the reader's knowledge of the causes, risk indicators, and the different forms of corrupt practices in the procurement process of infrastructure works, and how they affect the stages and the activities of the procurement process. A dynamic model is developed to demonstrate how to tackle the overall impact of corruption within the procurement process and at the same time, increase the effectiveness of the extant anti-corruption measures. In short, this book demonstrates that the fight against corruption in the procurement process is strategically feasible and must continue. This book is essential reading for academics, researchers, professionals and stakeholders in the procurement of infrastructure projects and civil works, and those with an interest in corruption, construction management and construction project management.

              Making Sense of Innovation in the Built Environment
               

              Making Sense of Innovation in the Built Environment (Hardback)

              This book offers a new understanding of innovation in project-based firms. It argues that a sensemaking approach is a useful means for explaining innovation and has important implications for policy makers, project managers, academics and students. Through a longitudinal research... study into innovation in project-based firms, the book addresses some key themes, challenges and concerns that practitioners face when managing innovation in the built environment. The book focuses on the lived stories of innovation as mobilised by practitioners from large UK construction, engineering and infrastructure corporations. A sensemaking perspective is utilised that offers a shift closer towards understanding socially constructed and contested stories of innovation. The book has practical implications for how organisational activities become labelled as `innovation' and for what purpose. It will be argued that it is striking how so many of the formal narratives of innovation at the policy level display so little connectivity with the lived narratives of innovation articulated by practitioners. The book provides a detailed examination of the drivers for innovation in construction, engineering and infrastructure organisations. In particular, the questions of how and why innovation becomes recognised and sustained over time are explored. Applying a sensemaking framework to explain innovation in both practical and accessible ways, and combining the theory and practice, this book presents an insightful view on the implications of innovation in the business world today.

              Trust in Construction Projects
               

              Trust in Construction Projects (Hardback)

              The relationship between project managers representing project owners and those on the contractor side is often threatened by communication risk. The main communication risk minimization strategy in the construction phase is trust, which plays a major role in the success of key w...orking relationships across the construction industry. This book investigates this phenomenon, and goes on to show that once developed, trust outshines all other strategies of communication risk minimization and is essential for project success. As part of this investigation, communication risk in construction projects is examined in detail, with a particular focus on the effects of information asymmetry on working relationships. Drawing on many years of empirical research involving project managers working internationally, Trust in Construction Projects also provides strategies to minimize information asymmetries in order to build trust, and ensure the success of construction projects. By increasing understanding of trust in construction projects, this book adds an important new perspective to the fields of construction management and project management. This is essential reading for researchers and students, as well as practitioners in these fields.
