Management and Planning Under Complexities of Metro Construction

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

    Abstract

    Nowadays, the majority of construction projects can be considered as complex and ambiguous endeavours. Each kind ofconstruction project has its own characteristics and complexities whereas then specific management approaches and solutions are needed. Regarding the rapid development of cities, underground constructions at urban regions, such as metro construction, have been largely used for extending daily human life into underground spaces. Therefore, the recognition of the complex elements of a metro construction can play a significant role in its management and planning. The aim of this study is to investigate these complexities in subway construction. This may develop the possibility of high predictability for these challenges. As metro projects are also urban underground projects, both internal and external issues are studiedand their impacts on project management are discussed. It is concluded that exceptional differences in the managing and planning of these constructions isthatcombinedinternal and external complexities are carried out simultaneously.
