Construction Management, Mechanization and Environmental Sustainability
With India emerging as a major global player in several sectors, the call for urbanization is at its zenith, more so now than ever before and as a developing nation, the onus for taking India to scale new heights rests primarily with the Construction Industry. For a developing nation like India, to progress and to join the Elite Club of the Developed Nations, the key is the availability of resources and the availability of a proper infrastructure. The idea of having a good infrastructure revolves around having proper housing facilities along with an excellent network of roadways, railways, bridges, docks, etc. Construction industry is more challenging than other industries due to: its unique nature; every project is one-of a kind; many conflicting parties are involved; projects are constrained by time, money and quality; and high risk. Hence for successful completion of any infrastructure project construction project management has become an important practice for improving the efficiency of construction operations around the world.
In this context BIT, Mesra Ranchi organized a National Conference on Construction Management, Mechanization and Environmental Sustainability (CMMES) during 21-22 Feb, 2017 with an idea to address these issues. CMMES 2017 aimed to bring together stakeholders, researchers, scientists, engineers, and scholar students to exchange and share their experiences, new ideas, and research results about all aspects of Construction and Project Management, Environmental sustainability and discuss the practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted.
This book will be beneficial for academicians, and researchers as it provides an insight of varied components of construction and developmental planning. Since the planning aspect has been addressed adequately in the book, this book will generate interest to decision makers too.
