Cost assessment of construction projects through neural networks
Gulcicek, Umit; Ozkan, Omer; Gunduz, Murat; DEMİR, İSMAİL HAKKI (Canadian Science Publishing, 2013-06-01)
Construction performance parameters have experienced greater international attention and discussion in recent years. In this study, the change in the load-bearing system cost of a reinforced concrete housing estate building was investigated in relation to the building importance factor, earthquake region, soil type, floor area, and the number of stories. Three different housing estate projects with seven and fifteen stories were investigated. The structural design calculations were performed according to fo...
Cost-based analysis of quality in developing countries: a case study of building projects
KAZAZ, AYNUR; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat; ULUBEYLİ, SERDAR (Elsevier BV, 2005-10-01)
This paper examines construction quality costs in Turkey. First, background information is presented on quality costing, on the prevention, appraisal, and failure (PAF) approach, and on PAF components. Secondly, a model is presented for determining the optimum level of total quality cost. Finally, a case study in which the costs of quality in a mass-housing project were collected and evaluated is presented. For the case study, the data were obtained in two stages: (i) during the construction period and (ii)...
Cost estimation of housing projects by functional areas
Öncül, Mustafa; Arıkan, Metin S.; Department of Civil Engineering (2006)
Good conceptual cost estimates is one of the most important factors affecting the project success. Investment decisions taken and budget preparations are performed from the results of the conceptual estimates. Also, the most difficult cost estimation is the early estimates where there is very limited information. This thesis provides a model for the cost estimation of the housing projects at the conceptual stage, considering not only the total area of the construction, but also considering fractional areas,...

Cost assessment of concrete and steel types for office buildings: An exploratory study
Kanit, Recep; Ozkan, Omer; Gunduz, Murat (Elsevier BV, 2007-09-01)
This paper presents a set of regression models which incorporates concrete and steel types in modeling the costs of office buildings. To these ends, three typical office buildings with seven and 15 stories have been designed by the help of a commercial software taking into account the Turkish practice. In each project C-16, C-20, C-25, C-30 and C-35 concrete classes and S-220 and S-420 steel types were used for dimensioning purposes. Rough construction costs were then calculated for different combinations o...
