||Registering space requirements of construction operations using site-PECASO model
||Mallasi Z, Dawood N N
||The profession of construction project planning is facing new challenges due to thecomplexity in architectural and engineering design, short deadlines, enormouspressure from clients, and the need to build faster. Such challenges becomeproblematic especially in large projects where construction operations shapecomplex spaces. The problem in current project planning techniques is that they donot include spatial requirements of construction operations as a resource in theirschedules. In this paper, we report on the recent development of Site-PECASOmodel (Patterns Execution and Critical Assessment of Spatial Organisation) as partof our on-going research. The technique of 'registering' space can be divided intothree parts: Extraction of geometrical information from CAD model; Application ofspace operation module developed in VBA; and structuring of CAD physicalcomponents in a hierarchy of Space Breakdown Structure (SBS) model. We showthe current state of implementation and demonstrate the integration between the3D-CAD model and the construction operations in the project schedule. In thiscontext, Site-PECASO will provide project planners with a product-orientedsimulation tool that highlights spatial clashes and interference betweenconstruction operations in real-time 4D (3D + time) environment.
