Lean Project Management using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

2019-02-01
As the construction industry is one of the dominant contributors to the world’s total CO2 emissions and it has huge negative impacts on the environment, sustainable construction has become a key aspiration in the field. Through utilizing eco-friendly design and resource efficiency, sustainable construction is considered as the main concept to create and operate a healthy built environment. Although sustainability has been demonstrated as a timeless objective for continuous development in Turkey’s governmental policies, the number of qualified professionals in the field and the attributed significance to the notion of sustainability in the Turkish educational context is questionable. Accordingly, this paper concentrates on the Turkish architectural and civil engineering education - two disciplines that are expected to raise experts on the subject – within the scope of sustainable construction. Ten research universities, which are identified by the Higher Education Institute (YÖK), are analyzed in terms of the content of the curriculum and the conducted graduate studies in architecture and civil engineering departments. The main aim of this paper is to reveal the lack of sustainability-related graduate studies and sustainability-related content in the established curriculum of the higher education institutions in Turkey.

Development of a lean and automated progress tracking system is one of the most challenging subjects in the construction industry. Since the current methods depend on individual and manual inspections of the site, they may have various problems. For instance, results include a natural bias since field personnel makes interpretations depending on their educational and expertise level. From the practical point of view, manual data collection and their comparison with construction drawings and schedules are in...

Embodied carbon assessment of residential housing at urban scale
Kayaçetin, Nuri Cihan; Tanyer, Ali Murat (2020-01-01)
A great majority of the previous research put extensive efforts on the evaluation of life cycle impacts and carbon footprint of single buildings. Analysis on single buildings often excludes components related with urban scale such as construction of infrastructure, distance to city centre and transportation. Research on neighbourhood-scale settlements is necessary to further develop the understanding of the environmental impact of built-environment.
Attitude of Turkish and Middle Eastern architecture engineering construction (AEC) industry toward integrated project delivery (IPD) method
Sharefi Abadi, Ali; Akçamete Güngör, Aslı; Department of Civil Engineering (2015)
Some of the 21th century’s controversial issues in construction industry are inability in completing the projects in schedule or budget, insufficient architectural drawings (according to the owners), inadequacy in decreasing the waste, tremendous energy consumption of buildings and inefficiency in controlling carbon emissions from buildings. Nonetheless, adversarial relationships between participants are a fatal factor in any project’s success. Unfortunately, previous project delivery methods incapable of s...
