  • Stanley, Ryan; Thurnell, Derek (Australasian Journal of Construction Economics and Building, 2014)
    Building Information Modelling (BIM) models are relational and parametric in nature, and 5D BIM is where model objects include specification data and other properties which can be directly used for pricing construction ...
  • Mannakkara, Sandeeka; Wilkinson, Suzanne; Potangaroa, Regan (Disasters Journal, 2014)
    “Build Back Better” (BBB) is a prominent concept in post-disaster reconstruction and has emerged from identifying the need for the reconstruction phase to be taken as an opportunity to decrease the vulnerability of communities ...
  • Su, Bin (International Journal of Civil, Architectural Science and Engineering, 2013)
    This study focuses on the impact of school building design factors on winter extra energy consumption which mainly includes space heating, water heating and other appliances related to winter indoor thermal conditions. A ...
  • Su, Bin (International Journal of Civil, Architectural Science and Engineering, 2013)
    Auckland has a temperate climate with comfortable warm, dry summers and mild, wet winters. Auckland house design not only focus on winter thermal performance and indoor thermal condition, but also indoor moisture control, ...
  • Kenley, Russell; Chiazor, Maxwell; Hall, Jon; Heywood, Christopher (2010)
    This project investigates good practices for managing Australia’s public and community housing assets. To a large extent the report concerns the identification of existing practices as an attempt to build a picture of asset ...
  • Harfield, T; Davies, Kathryn; Hede, Joseph; Panko, Mary; Kenley, Russell (Emirates Journal for Engineering Research, 2007)
    In 1993, Betts and Liow called for a shift from traditional ‘chalk and talk’ teaching methods to ‘active learning’ for construction students. However, this study appears to be the first to provide an active learning ...
  • Su, Bin (Architectural Science Review, 2006)
    This paper reports on a study that researched the possibility of building passive designs to prevent mould growth in housing in humid and mild winter climatic zones without permanent thermal active controls. This study ...
  • Su, Bin (World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology, 2012)
    A hotel mainly uses its energy on water heating, space heating, refrigeration, space cooling, cooking, lighting and other building services. A number of 4-5 stars hotels in Auckland city are selected for this study. ...
  • Su, Bin (Architectural Science Review, 2011)
    The energy consumption of a house can be affected simultaneously by many building design factors related to its main architectural features, building elements and materials. The relationship between the building design ...
  • Bogunovich, Dushko; Bradbury, Matthew (Planning Quarterly, 2012)
    Further spatial expansion of Auckland is inevitable, but this does not have to lead to environmental disaster and a poor quality of life. An alternative approach has been developed.
  • Fernando, Achela; Shamseldin, Asaad; Abrahart, Robert (Journal of Hydrologic Engineering, 2012)
    This paper deals with the application of an innovative method for combining estimated outputs from a number of rainfall-runoff models using Gene Expression Programming (GEP) to perform symbolic regression. The GEP multi-model ...
  • Fernando, Achela; Jayawardena, Amithirigala (Journal of Hydroinformatics, 2007)
    Parameter optimisation is a significant but time consuming process that is inherent to conceptual hydrological models representing rainfall-runoff process. This study presents two modifications to achieve optimised results ...
  • Fernando, Achela; Shamseldin, Asaad (Journal of Hydrologic Engineering, 2009)
    This paper deals with the challenging problem of hydrological interpretation of the internal functioning of ANNs by extracting knowledge from their solutions. The neural network used in this study is based on the structure ...
  • Thurnell, Derek; Morrison, Emily (Australasian Journal of Construction Economics and Building, 2012)
    The construction industry is a challenging environment in which to work, with job characteristics that are linked to work-life conflict, and it is important for its future sustainability that initiatives to support employee ...
  • Sharma, Rashika; Monteiro, Sylila (International Journal of Learning, 2010)
    The continued process of economic globalization challenges education as a means of achieving individual success in a constantly changing society. Education of today might be obsolete tomorrow in a technologically driven ...
  • Sharma, Rashika (International Journal of Environmental, Cultural, Economic and Social Sustainability, 2011)
    This year marks the midpoint of the Decade of Education for Sustainable Development but sustainability still remains a foreign concept in the New Zealand vocational and trade education curriculum. Thus research was conducted ...
