Analysis of Prefabricated Urban Housing Constructions on Freight Transport Systems

Conference paper : INFORMS

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.
