Korean Journal of Construction Engineering and Management, volume 5, issue 3, 2004, Pages 55~62
The purpose of this study is to suggest a systematic procedural model for selecting competent project promoter. The proposed model was made by comparing domestic regulations and procedures with foreign nations', and through interviews with experts and literatures survey. The summaries of this paper are as follows. The current promoter selection procedure was evaluated by reviewing relevant papers, regulations and existing model. Some obstructions which hinder PPI project activation were identified, those are inadequacy of promoter qualification and negotiation process, lack of communication between parties, etc. Some alternatives which remove major obstructions are embodied in the model. The suggested model is comprised of PQ(prequalification), two phased evaluation for the technical proposals which include alternate, communication meeting, etc. To manage the overall procedure well, an involvement of professional "project promoter selection team" would be highly recommended. They will participate in each evaluation stage with full activities, and provide government with some technical materials for selecting promoter as coordinator.

In conventional method of supporting soil shuttering wall during excavation a system of struts and wales to provide cross-lot bracing is common in trench excavations and other excavations of limited width. This method, however, becomes difficult and costly to be adopted for large excavations since heavily braced structural systems are required. Another expensive and unsafe situations are expected when temporary struts must be removed for the construction of underground structures. This paper introduces innovative strut systems which can be used as permanent underground structures after its role as brace system to resist earth pressure during excavation phase. Underground structural system suggested from architect is checked against the soil lated pressures before the analysis of stresses developed from gravity loads. In this technology, named SPS(Struts as Permanent System), retaining wall is installed first and excavation proceeds until the first level of bracing is reached. Braces used as struts during excavation will serve as permanent girders when buildings are in operation. Simultaneous construction of underground and superstructure can proceeds when excavation ends with the last level of braces being installed. In this paper, construction sequence and the calculation concept are explained in detail with some photo illustrations. SPS technology was applied to three selected buildings. One of them was completed and two others are being constructed Many sensors were installed to monitor the behavior of retaining wall, braces as column in terms of stress change and displacement. Adjacent ground movement was also obtained. These projects demonstrate that SPS technology contributes to the speed as well as the economy involved in construction.
Theoretical Reviews of Client Briefing and Suggestions for Conducting it in Korea
Kim Ju-Hyung ;
Korean Journal of Construction Engineering and Management, volume 5, issue 3, 2004, Pages 79~87
Building industry clients are suggested to clarify requirements and needs properly at the pre-project stage. According to these they can develop options to meet their needs with considering their resources and business case. At this stage, they make decisions while professionals in the industry are not involving. This process is called client briefing at the pre-project stage. However, client briefing is not a discrete process only conducted at this stage; various clients briefings should be performed over a project lift cycle. The client briefing at the pre-project stage is more important than others as the value for the clients is clarified at this stage - they may not be satisfied for the project results even when the project is finished on time within budget if the value itself is incorrectly defined. Given that the client briefing is important as stated, this paper aims to review theory on client briefing focusing those at the pre-project stage. As a part of research, a prototype workshop for client briefing is held and findings from it are summarized. Finally, suggestions for conducting client briefing in Korea are presented in terms of directions of relevant research, systems in the industry and points that clients or client briefing consultants should consider.

Recently, client requirements concept is an important issue related to many effects of firms. Especially, if we think that apartment is given a great deal of national construction industry, it is requested that we should try to improve apartment quality with various methods of client requirements survey and reflecting those on apartment project. The technique searching and applying client requirements to apartment project is requested for that and ROQ(Return On Quality) process connected to QFD(Quality Function Deployment) is a technique which is used in manufacturing industry and help to make money by rising client satisfaction with searching clients requirements, and applying this to quality improvement program. In this study apartment quality management development is suggested through using ROQ process. For this customer interview research and FGI(Focus Group Interview) was carried out and clients requirement was analyzed with this. Then quality improvement program applicable to developing a new apartment product was established with specialist monitoring. A new apartment quality management development plan is prosed with this process.

Planning phase became very important because the construction market in Korea is often unpredictable. The existing feasibility analysis cannot fulfill its purpose in development projects because they are based on intuitive approach rather than systematic approach. The purpose of this study is to make a prototype of feasibility model to be a good investment. To build the model, first, risk factors which can be occurred in project had to be selected. Risk factors were divided into several groups in basis of characteristical risk. Economical risk factors were input on financial analysis. Then, to catch the relevance and influence of all risk factors, influence diagram and decision tree were made. Finally, sensitivity analysis was activated, then what the critical factors were, and how those factors could be solved. Through these procedures, the feasibility model that was made in this study could include both quantitative and qualitative factors. This model is expected to be used as a guide of feasibility analysis including all risk factors and is to serve systematic frame in planning and feasibility stage.

Most construction project managers should focus on the reasonable cost-down with same quality and function-enhancement with same cost for the value-added construction project delivery in construction industry. Especially, a building structure construction is one of the most important processes to affect the total cost and schedule in building construction project. It means that the process has the possibility of project cost-down or quality-enhancement among the whole project life-cycle. This research focuses on the importance of underground structure of building project by increasing underground use ratio in the urban building construction projects nowadays. This research adopts VE method for the improvement of cost and time by process and analysis dimension modeling on the underground building structure construction, and verifies it throughout the case study, This research is the basic study on the improvement of underground building works through the value engineering method in construction industry.

A road is an infrastructure that helps boost up growth of local economy, connections among local communities and living conditions. For South Korea the increase in infrastructures like roads now concentrates on specific regions, which causes regional imbalance. also, some areas are faced with the overall weakness of local economy such as decrease in local tax revenues, slowdown in industrial and economic growth of regions, and the low independence of local finances because lack of roads, a basis of local economic growth, make big and smaller business reluctant to invest in localities. In addition, even though the power-centralized age turns to a decentralized age, the preference of development policies by the existing economic size rather than those of nationwide balanced development gets the economic gap of localities deeply-rooted; moreover, disparity of local wealth has a tendency to even differentiate the overall quality of living. The paper intends to analyze relations between road development and local economy focused on road construction, one of requisites to balance national development and accelerate local economy.

In May 2004, Poland with nine other Eastern European countries joined the European Union(EU). After accession to the EU, Poland will accelerate the realization of investment in road sector, and wants to achieve important development of its road network condition in year 2005. Polish government is not able to afford the whole investment needed for construction of its motorways, so it wants to develop effective techniques of project funding based on the Public Private Partnerships(PPP). Without having high-performance transport networks, one country's economy cannot be competitive. It was the reason for establishing the Trans European Network(TEN) in the European Union. It creates the links, which are still missing between the fifteen countries of Western Europe and the new member countries like Poland. Consequently, Poland will also need to establish a proper transport infrastructure network. This paper will discuss how the PPP scheme can be applied for the transport infrastructure development in Poland as a EU member.

Since the Construction Management(CM) was introduced into the Korea construction industry, the efforts for acceleration of CM adaption have been continued. The fact that an owner organization has the essential key to successful application of CM delivery method is true, but there has been no study on owner's organization. An owner should decide their organization type and measure their current needs for several different construction business functions for successful application of CM. After the needs of CM business functions are measured, the owner should reinforce their required business functions through strengthening their in-house capability or outsourcing. Thus, this paper defines four kinds of owner organization type and suggest the form for evaluation of owner's CM ability and analyze about needs of each type's CM capability through a survey.

Owing to the growth of Information Technology, some of big general contractors have been interested in the development of Quality Management Information Systems to integrate the information of quality in planning, design, procurement, construction, and maintenance phases, and tried to maximize the usefulness of it. But the trend has confined only to some big general contractors. The purpose of this paper is to put together and analyze the character of Quality Management Information Systems of big general construction companies and classfy them into a result-focused system and a process-focused system in order to provide primary information for both of development and adoption of the systems.
Quantitative Analysis on Factors Affecting Crew Productivity : Crew Size
Huh Youngki ;
Korean Journal of Construction Engineering and Management, volume 5, issue 3, 2004, Pages 146~152
Consideration of factors driving crew productivities is imperative for accurate construction time estimation. Their impacts need to be well understood by estimators. There have been, however, little studies that quantified relationships between crew productivities and factors. This paper quantifies impacts of
on crew productivities, for three highway concrete bridge activities, namely Column, Cap, and Deck, based on data compiled from 17 on-going highway projects in Texas State, USA. It was found that, for Bridge Deck operation, an increase of one crew-worker of formwork and rebarwork by one, leads to an increase of the productivity (cy/crew day) by 2.5 and 2.9, respectively. For the other activities, larger crew sizes did not lead to better crew productivities.

Korean Journal of Construction Engineering and Management, volume 5, issue 3, 2004, Pages 153~165
Most engineering tasks require collaboration between many users in major hospital construction projects that have many reconstructions. Loss and change orders occurred in factors such as information exchange, misunderstandings, advanced technology in hospital projects. Moreover, changes in context, costs, requirements, deadlines, etc. require negotiation of issues that may modify important project characteristics. The objective of this paper is to reduce reconstruction for the pre-construction process of hospital projects, reconstruction factors were analyzed in recent hospital construction project the system was established in order to solve reconstruction factors, and this system was validated through applying to the real project. Therefore it is a major challenge to make high level of communication and to have mutual understanding.
