In recent years, changing market conditions and limitations on resources have put enormous stress on the construction industry (1). Projects’ scope gets complex and clients / owners are now asking construction professionals to deliver more qualified products for less budget. In order to achieve a more effective project delivery mechanism, getting constructive feedback from previously implemented projects is getting more and more important. Evaluating the performance of buildings after they have been occupied is an important step of project life cycle that provides feedback to the professionals related to the building. This systematic and detailed inspection, carried out with the users of the building, is called Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE). POE provides credible evidence about the positive and negative aspects of the buildings from the users’ point of view. As a result of ensuring that feedback is applied throughout the process, building quality is protected during planning and construction and later, during occupation and operations (Preiser and Vischer, 2005).


International Market Entry Decisions: A Knowledge-Based Approach
Ozorhon, B,; Dikmen Toker, İrem; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat (null; 2006-03-18)
As far as the growing potential in the overseas construction markets is concerned, it is becoming more important for the medium to large-size construction companies to take their parts in the global construction market. An international market selection decision may be considered as a highly complex problem since it involves several correlated parameters regarding the project, market, host country and the company in question. Moreover, there is no mathematical formulation that can easily associate all these...
A statistical approach to lean construction implementations of construction companies in Turkey
Tezel, Bülent Algan; Nielsen, Yasemin; Department of Civil Engineering (2007)
One of the major change efforts for the construction industry is lean construction. This thesis analyzes the practices of the construction companies in Turkey from the lean construction perspective. Prior to the analysis in question, requisite information about change in the construction industry, lean thinking and lean construction will be presented. A questionnaire, based on a lean construction model, is used to survey the practices and gather the data for the analysis. Various statistical analysis method...
Cash flow analysis of construction projects using fuzzy set theory
Melik, Serhat; Sönmez, Rifat; Department of Civil Engineering (2010)
Construction industry is a one of the most risky sectors due to high level of uncertainties included in the nature of the construction projects. Although there are many reasons, the deficiency of cash is one of the main factors threatening the success of the construction projects and causing business failures. Therefore, an appropriate cash planning technique is necessary for adequate cost control and efficient cash management while considering the risks and uncertainties of the construction projects. The m...
Assessing risk management maturity : a framework for the construction companies
Öngel, Begüm; Tanyer, Ali Murat; Department of Building Science in Architecture (2009)
Due to its complex nature, risk and uncertainty are more widespread in construction industry than many other industries. Aiming to ensure that all project objectives are met, risk management is considered as a critical success factor for construction projects. The core elements of risk management are now known and used by many organizations. On the other hand, as declared by Project Management Institute (PMI), the ability to measure the effectiveness in managing risk is one of the most important areas that ...
Performance based façades: retrofit strategies for energy efficiency and comfort in existing office buildings
Jahed, Negin; Gürsel Dino, İpek; Department of Architecture (2018)
The building industry is faced with a vast stock of existing buildings that are not sustainable and suffer from poor conditions in terms of physical problems. Energy retrofitting of existing buildings is considered as a rational strategy to minimize buildings’ environmental impact in the long term. Standard building retrofits focus on prescriptive measures to comply with energy standards rather than occupant requirements. In contrast, the proposed performance-based retrofit approach focuses, primarily on in...
