DELIMITATIONS, ASSUMPTIONS AND SIGNIFICANCE Limitations: maintenance of equipment can be seen as an adequate measure of work on an equipment to restore or preserve it.
Introduction Many of historic buildings have been added to over the years around the world. There are different reasons for adding new additions to historical building such as to make the building more functional, to improve the economic viability of the building, to change building system and technology and so on. The new additions should be compatible with the materials and other character-defining elements of the historic building. In some cases, there is different between rooftop additions and historical building. In these cases, new additions can be removed or to make the exterior more compatible with the character of the historic building (Grimmer and Weeks, 2010) to determine if an existing additions are significant or not.
This has a very adverse impact on the planet and changes the natural cycle in a negative manner. Hence, learning to construct buildings and monuments in an environmental friendly way is extremely important for sustaining life on the planet. Through better planning and architecture, a lot of wastage can be avoided and green fields and natural fertile lands can be left as such without using them for construction purposes. Thus, the architects play a very important role in developing a sustainable design. In
(2017) when they studied the effect on public hospital building, effectiveness of management in maintenance aspect holds the key element in influencing the performance of overall maintenance management. In this case the most complicated field was the need of public hospital building for an effective maintenance management. Improper building maintenance management adopted by the organization significantly will interrupt the overall operation of the building. Therefore, this paper is aim to identifying the key performance indicator (KPI) of effectiveness of maintenance management for the public hospital building. A total of 32 set of questionnaires were distributed to the maintenance manager for each hospital by using self-administration strategy.
“Construction management is a bridge that connects creativity and reality”. An architect intending to pursue masters in construction management is quite unlikely. Not to mention I realized my interest for construction management as a student of architecture and as an architect in the construction industry. My inclination towards sketching buildings from my childhood has nurtured my interest for architecture. It is not the mere aesthetical elements that caught my attention but the transformation of space through various clairvoyant elements that can only be felt, engendered my cravenness for architecture.
Kats, 2003), according to Gregory green buildings are commonly perceived to be a lot more expensive than conventional buildings and often not worth the extra cost. For example, an early 2003 article in the New York Times was entitled “Not Building Green Is Called a Matter of Economics.” This defines the constructing of green building, during construction it is expensive but cheaper at a long-run. Constructing green buildings strengthens the relationship between the building and the environment. (Gregory H. Kats, 2003), “Green Buildings provide financial benefits that conventional buildings do not. These benefits include energy and water savings, reduced waste, improved indoor environmental quality, greater employee comfort/productivity, reduced employee health costs and lower operations and maintenance costs.
The design of concrete bridges for durability, safety, sustainability and serviceability against various aggressive environments is also discussed. Durable concrete should be a quality concrete to avoid serious problem. Engineers must ensure the good quality of the bridges during its service life. Ensuring the safety and serviceability of bridges must be consider together with the future maintenance cost not only the first cost of construction and design. Having good strength properties, low maintenance cost over the service life and good durability characteristics are factors to produce good, strong and quality concrete
The project should be functionally practical and financially attainable. Not only this but a numerous construction, legal and environmental aspects need to be given a thought in the project. The responsibilities of a construction manager include specifying project objectives and plans including outlining of scope, budgeting, scheduling, setting performance requirements, and selecting project participants; maximizing the resource efficiency through procurement of labor, materials and equipment; implementing various operations through proper coordination and control of planning, design, estimating, contracting and construction in the entire process and developing effective communications and mechanisms for resolving conflicts. A post graduate degree in Construction Management would guide me in the right direction in understanding these aspects and fulfilling my professional and personal
These are people who own commercial building and require maintenance service contract to look after their building. As the main objectives and quality service promised for facility management company it applies the same quality and standard service for individual customers but the standard of quality service. Its benefits directly impacted individual customers than facility management companies so M&E maintenance company uses individual customers as sales people; they are the ones that can easily promote around them as a word of mouth is one of the dynamic tool for
