Analysis of Prefabricated Urban Housing Constructions on Freight Transport Systems

Abstract

Prefabricated buildings have become the choice of many construction teams as they offer time, cost, quality and environmental benefits compared to traditional on-site construction. We have explored the effects of prefabricated urban constructions on freight transport systems and identified cost-efficient logistics strategies using genetic algorithm. Our results will be beneficial for the Construction Method Selection Model which advises to what extent building components should be prefabricated.
