Modeling and Simulation of Public Housing Construction in Hong Kong

Fig.3a Utilization of cranes

Some more work is under way to enhance the simulation model by including detailed operations, such as installation of precasted concrete panels, placing concrete, and crane operations.

3-D animation and visualization are the promising technique to convince contractors about the simulation results. They also allow the user to experiment various construction methods on a computer and to design a new floor cycle plan (e.g. 2-day cycle). Integrating simulation results with animation and 3-D visualization is the remaining work of this study.
