Abstract

This research presents a construction-space model that defines a collection of descriptive space types and typical patterns of space use in multistory building construction. Recent space-planning research describes characteristics of space and provides simple models of space demand for construction work to support automated space-planning methods. These simplified models cannot accurately represent the space needed for complex networks of work and material-handling activities in multistory buildings. The construction-space model identifies 12 construction-activity space uses, and their typical patterns. Repeatable patterns of space needs are recognizable and often occur independently in core, floor area, and perimeter work zones. The construction-space model characterizes these space needs to predict space demand, and thus supports the logical planning of productive work sequences. Through case-study research and site observation, the space model was found to accurately represent the use of space by construction activities in multistory building construction. If applied on site, this research helps construction managers plan and manage space.
