The purpose of this research is to develop a conceptual model that establishes a new approach for functional area cost estimating in the schematic design phase. A cost estimating model should consider not only the estimate accuracy, but also the flexibility to the design alternatives and user-oriented serviceability. Therefore, this research uses the method that classifies various facilities of a building according to its functions by analyzing historical data. After setting the functional area as cost parameter, a formula which can estimate functional area cost is derived from statistical analysis. Finally, to validate the proposed conceptual model, it is applied to historical data of a military barrack project. It enables customized space planning reflecting client`s needs and compares the cost of various design alternatives as well as improves estimate accuracy.

A considerable number of construction disasters occurs on pathway. A safety management in construction sites is usually performed to prevent accidents in activity areas. This means that safety management level of hazards on pathway is relatively minified. Many researchers have introduced that a hazard identification is fundamental of safety management. Thus, algorithms for helping safety managers` hazardous area identification is developed using automated data collection technology. These algorithms primarily search potential hazardous area by comparing workers` location logs based on real-time locating system and optimal routes based on BIM. And potential hazardous areas is filtered by identified hazardous areas and activity areas. After that, safety managers are provided with information about potential hazardous areas and can establish proper safety countermeasures. This can help improving safety in construction sites.

Benchmarking is an effective tool supporting improvement of corporate competitiveness and development of management strategy, however, its effectiveness may be compromised if its target and approach are not appropriate. Notably, the construction industry of Korea is unique in that it has a number of competitors sharing the same category and is significantly exposed to changes in external environment in terms of legal, regulatory and policy frameworks. Such characteristics make target corporate category rather than single company more suitable as benchmarking target and necessitate analysis of external environment. This study intends to analyze the characteristics of construction industry in Korea and conditions of domestic companies in order to propose a benchmarking process for construction industry differentiated from conventional ones.학교 건축공학과, 산학협력기술연구원;경희대학교 대학원;경희대학교 대학원;

A firm decides to go to the project based on its investment analysis. However, the cash flows generated from the real project can not be always coincident with what expected as it follows uncertain behavior and the asymmetric payoff caused by the managerial flexibilities involved in the real asset affects the project value. Amongst various managerial flexibilities entailed in most of the real assets, although investment delay has been known to enhance the project value thanks to its ability to provide new market information to management, the related research to select the time to invest have been just few. Therefore, this research aims to show the theoretical framework to decide when to invest reflecting the behaviors of increasing project value and loss recovery cost due to investment delay with option pricing, related financial economic, and variational theories.

Our nation`s housing construction is given much weight over 32% in 2007 and especially apartment is taking over 67%. If we put into construction environment consideration, we are having a trouble with price cap policy and the realestate recession due to the global economic crisis. So in order to get competitive power and supply of cheap apartment, the necessity of cost saving is increasing. This research collected the past constructed apartment project`s cost saving examples which were influencing on the construction cost, quality and time. We analyzed collected cost saving datum and assorted these in compliance with classification system. By analysis of correlation among datum with exclusion and integration, we make a propose cost saving Checklist that will be a base data to give a chance to use in working level and other research.

Since the larger and complex construction projects are performed, project performance measurement is highlighting the importance to eliminate inefficiencies and plan to reasonable management practices. So many researchers are conducting research about the project critical sucess factor. But, these factors are mixed both management practices to improve performance and native project characteristics. Therefore performance measurement data couldn`t apply to another project successfully. And the project characteristics affect project performance. But contractor couldn`t change characteristics. This study provides a project characteristics`s definition and classification. This study provides a quantitative level of performance improvement difficulty through out project manager survey. The contractor can estimate a level of performance difficulty through initial project information. With this, project contractor can more efficiently manage project.

Military Barracks and Bachelor Officer`s Quarters are public buildings representing architectural characteristics with repeating the same room modules. These buildings require easy dismantling and reusing for the next generation` military re-organization. For these reasons, since 2005, the modular construction has been applied to military buildings. The most important factors required for modular military buildings are standardization, lowcost construction and reusable construction method. However, conventional modular building system have not been matched with these requirements. This study suggests a new modular system for Bachelor Officer`s Quarters using Six-sigma design tool. To reflect the voices of customers, market study and surveys were carried out. Through the QFD, the voices of customers were converted into quality characteristics of building system for BOQ. The various design concepts meeting customer`s requirement were derived by the QFD and Pugh matrix methodology. The proposed modular building system shows 80% increased factory production rate and 62% decreased weight of steel frame as compared with the conventional modular building system.

The main roots of CM service contracts include existing customer repurchases and those made by new customers by existing ones. The study on customers and loyalty can be factors to strengthen CM`s competitiveness. However, there have been little attempt to study customer satisfaction and customer loyalty. Construction Management (CM), the advanced construction management method, was introduced 15 years ago in the mid 1990`s in the domestic market. The aim of this research is to build a model that can predict customer loyalty based on how much customers are satisfied with CM service. To measure customer satisfaction and loyalty, this research surveyed 135 decision-makers who have experienced CM services. Customer satisfaction was tested and analyzed according to different phases: planning, designing, procurement, construction, and post construction. Referral intention was tested based on NPS theory. Customer types were divided into detractors, passively satisfied and promoters according to the tested measurement and multinomial logistic regression between the satisfaction by construction phases and customer types. This research resulted to a model that can predict customer types: detractors, passively satisfied and promoters, which were determined according to satisfaction level. The initial planning phase also revealed which factor is most influential for a customer to become promoter. These results can be used to acquire customer loyalty by managing the satisfaction of customers through a project under an Internet-based environment. Such can provide the needed information in quickly exploring positive and negative word-of-mouth feedbacks.

As the customer`s interest for sidewalk block in the street or apartment complex is increasing, the materials of block which had been a concrete block exclusively are varied to clay paver, native rock and wood etc. Especially, the sales volume of clay paver which is environment-friendly and ergonomic is dramatically increasing every year with two digits growth rate, however, many problems like "Edge Cracking" "Freezing Breakage" "Bending Breakage" "Joint Gap" are happening frequently within a couple of hours after installation due to the durabilities. Because of the characteristics of Ceramic products, clay pavers are very easy to be broken when they are bumped against each other. In addition, they are relatively fragile by a freezing expansion breakage when exposed to water due to hydrophilic property as well as the intensity and absorptance of the products are varied with small difference from the production process such as production equipment and process control. Therefore, it costs a lot of money to repair the breakdown unless production and installation is carried out according to the strict criteria of the quality control. In this study, the symptoms of breakdown frequently happened in clay paver are classified by each type and finally the solution for this problem in the production of brick, installation and criteria of quality control through compressive strength and absorptance test is suggested.

Seventy percent of Korea`s national territory is covered with mountains, and the land is frequently exposed to typhoons and localized torrential downpours, particularly in July through September. For this reason, slope failure is one of the most frequent types of natural disasters in Korea. To prevent the damage caused by slope failure, the Korean government, academia and industry have strived together to develop and install a wired system for monitoring slope failures. However, conventional wired monitoring systems have been reported to have limitations, such as possible system errors caused by lightning, and the difficulties of restoration and management of the systems. To solve these problems, this research suggests a USN-based monitoring system for slope failures. First, the trend of slope measurement and USN technology was analyzed, and then the current status of damage caused by slope failures in Korea was reviewed. Next, a USN-based monitoring scenario for slope failures, incorporating both USN and slope monitoring technique, was developed. Finally, sensors were decided based on the developed scenario. It is expected that the results of this study will be utilized as fundamental data for the development of monitoring prototype systems for slope failures in the future. The development of the USN-based monitoring system for slope failures and its application in the field will also ultimately contribute to the prevention of slope failures and the minimization of related damage.
