Critical success factors for build operate transfer (BOT) projects: lessons learned from airport projects

Kashef, Mohammad
BOT model is widely used in developing countries to facilitate the construction of immediately needed infrastructure projects with both technical and financial risks being borne by the private sector. BOT model differs from traditional ones because of its financial structure and operation service that is included in the concession. The aim of this research is to identify the critical success factors (CSFs) for BOT projects by examining real BOT projects, mainly airport projects. In this research, a detailed literature survey has been carried out as well as in-depth interviews with experts to identify the CSFs that are categorized in 13 groups. Based on these factors, a decision support v checklist has been developed. The checklist has the “source” of each CSF and the “phase” of the project that the CSF will have an effect. Finally two BOT projects, namely Dalaman and Aktau International Airport Projects, are studied thoroughly using the developed checklist. This research gives clear description and understanding of CSFs for airport projects which was a missing part in the construction management literature together with illustrative real cases. The findings of this research may be helpful for decision makers at the initial stages of BOT projects by providing a checklist of CSFs and demonstrating their significance in each phase of a BOT project.


Technical change and efficiency in Turkish manufacturing industries
Taymaz, Erol (1997-11-01)
Technical progress and production efficiency are central to economic growth and international competitiveness. However, these topics received little attention in Less Developed Countries. This study is the first attempt to measure and to understand the extent and importance of technical progress and efficiency in Turkish manufacturing industries. Stochastic production frontiers for Turkish textile, cement, and motor vehicles industries are estimated by using panel data of plants for the years 1987 to 1992. ...
Implications of Information Technology in Developing Countries and Its impact in organizational Change
Kenaroğlu, Bahar (Science And Technology Policies Research Center, Middle East Technical University (Ankara, Turkey), 2003)
The survival and growth of organizations in an increasingly turbulent environment would depend upon effective utilization of information technology for aligning the organizational structure with environmental preferences and for creating symbiotic interorganizational structures. How can IT help the organizations in responding to the challenges of an increasingly complex and uncertain environment? How can IT help the organizations achieve the ìflexibleî organization structure? These are the topics that remai...
Investment needs for climate change adaptation measures of electricity power plants in the EU
Lise, Wietze; van der Laan, Jeroen (2015-10-01)
Climate change is expected to have impacts on the power sector, leading to, among others, a need for adaptation measures in the sector in the near future. This paper analyses the need to adapt to climate change impacts for power generation technologies in Europe until 2100. Europe is broadly divided into four geographic climate zones, for which regional climate change impacts are quantified with the help of the ENSEMBLES RT2b data. The European future technology mix is based on two Eurelectric energy scenar...
Examining the maps of air transport network characteristics
Kılıç Depren, Serpil; Gökalp Yavuz, Fulya (2018-11-05)
Understanding the role of air transportation structure increases the economic and social assets in local and global scale. Identifying that role is required for an effective air transportation management, as well. Different methods are used to visualize, analyze network structures and to better understand complex network features of the air transportation. This study presents social network analysis as a method to extract information about the network through a pattern of individuals and communities. In a g...
Potential Utilization of Building Information Models for Planning Maintenance Activities
Akçamete Güngör, Aslı; Garrett, James H (2010-06-30)
The opportunities for leveraging Building Information Models (BIMs) for facility operations are compelling and yet utilization of BIMs during building operation and maintenance is falling behind the BIM implementations for design and construction. Current studies of BIMs used for the operations phase and commercially available technologies focus on transferring information from the design and construction phases to the operations phase by enabling creation and capturing of digital facility information throu...
