oa Interim : Interdisciplinary Journal - A mechanism for waste reduction in structural design process in South Africa construction

Volume 14, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 1684-498X



Structural design process (SDP) consists of three processes of inception; preliminary design and detail design. Each of these processes is laden with wastes that adversely affect project performance. Therefore, this study seeks to identify such wastes so as to develop a mechanism for its effective management. To achieve this, action research study will be conducted in some consulting engineering firms situated in Bloemfontein, South Africa. It is expected that the results will provide the platform for the development of a suitable mechanism for reduction / elimination of wastes in structural design process.
