Abstract

The project’s aim was to investigate and analyse the different phases of construction at several different sites having concrete structures, in different locations and with different uses. In order to be able to do this study, a system of data-gathering was created to consider the specific conditions of the building sector in Italy, highlighting the aspects of “productivity” and “safety management” as the principal parameters. The results of the research were intended to be useful in the creation of a model for the investigation into the management of construction sites, especially for the personnel concerned with the execution of concrete works. The investigation took place in Italy and is based on the experiences of the research group over many years. This “monitoring project” has led to a better understanding of the linkages between production, use, and the technical and economic management of formworks. It has illustrated the importance of a correct decision making/implementation of design, and the subsequent use of site clearing works matching construction management capabilities, to yield safe day-by-day working conditions, not just theoretically, but with the capability to measure them with the contractors, both general and sub. Analysis of survey results has shown that cooperation and synergy between project members from the inception of the project has yielded better project results in terms of economies, techniques, quality and safety. Design and organizational choices and the understanding that changes may result in delays as well as improvements, result from project, technical, qualitative, logistical and typology have been noted.
