About these proceedings

Introduction

This book presents the proceedings of CRIOCM_2016, 21st International Conference on Advancement of Construction Management and Real Estate, sharing the latest developments in real estate and construction management around the globe. The conference was organized by the Chinese Research Institute of Construction Management (CRIOCM) working in close collaboration with the University of Hong Kong. Written by international academics and professionals, the proceedings discuss the latest achievements, research findings and advances in frontier disciplines in the field of construction management and real estate. Covering a wide range of topics, including building information modelling, big data, geographic information systems, housing policies, management of infrastructure projects, occupational health and safety, real estate finance and economics, urban planning, and sustainability, the discussions provide valuable insights into the implementation of advanced construction project management and the real estate market in China and abroad. The book is an outstanding reference resource for academics and professionals alike.

Dr. Isabelle Chan is lecturer at the Department of Real Estate and Construction, University of Hong Kong, PRC.  In the past few years, she has participated in more than 10 government-/university- /industry-funded research projects covering areas of occupational health and safety, sustainability, and innovation in construction.  In line with these projects, she has over 50 international publications in books, journals and conferences.  Isabelle is also the vice-chairman of the Institute of Safety and Health Practitioners in Hong Kong.

Dr. Wilson Lu’s research interests mainly including Building Information Modelling (BIM), smart
construction, big data in construction waste management, and international construction. He is the Associate Dean of the Faculty of Architecture (FoA), looking after research and knowledge exchange (KE) in the Faculty. Dr Lu is also steering the development of iLab, which is an urban big data hub under the umbrella of the HKUrbanLab, the research arm of the FoA at HKU. iLab facilitates multi-dimensional and multi-disciplinary urban big data collection, storage, analysis, and presentation to inform all sorts of decision-making throughout the lifecycle of urban development. iLab also has its own unique research remit to integrate big data in pursuit of integrated modeling of smart urban development, combining smart community, smart infrastructure, smart construction, smart property and facilities management and Internet of Things (IoTs). His recent research projects fostered in iLab include how BIM can be used for construction cost management, smart construction, logistic and supply chain management, and facility maintenance. 

Prof. Chris Webster is Dean of the Faculty of Architecture, the University of Hong Kong, and leads the HKUrbanLab. He has degrees in urban planning, computer science, economics and economic geography and is a leading urban theorist and spatial economic modeller.  He has published over 150 scholarly papers on the idea of spontaneous urban order and received over US$20M grants for research and teaching and learning projects. He was co-editor of Environment and Planning B for ten years.

hrough Urban Planning. Cheltenham: Edward Elgar. Professor Webster has nine prize-winning academic papers on urban theory. 
He has many research interests on the go, including leading HKU’s Healthy High Density Cities research group. His current research agenda for this group is to establish systematic evidence for the relationship between urban configuration (planned and spontaneous) and individual health. To do this he has teamed up with the Oxford University based UKBiobank (N=500,000), the HKU LKS Faculty of Medicine’s Family cohort (N=40,000) and other national-scale epidemiology studies (N=500,000) to create large scale medical- built-environment platforms for healthy-city science. He also co-leads HKU’s One Belt One Road Observatory (OBORObs), which has the objective of modelling and predicting connectivity improvements in the Eurasian urban network and advising city governments on smart land policy to capture more of the land value uplift of OBOR infrastructure f
or the urban poor.
