Abstract

The paper summarizes research efforts performed, or currently under way, in the development and implementation of FIAPP-based systems for clients in the private and public sectors, and results from New York City case studies in building construction and renovation (case studies include the renovation of the Brotherhood Synagogue, the construction of Polytechnic University's new dormitory, and a renovation of New York City Transit subway station complex). The case studies and underlying research efforts build on the experiences of the research team and the strengths of FIAPP technology, as well as put forward lessons learned on issues related to strategic planning, impediments to adoption of the technology, expectations of clients and project participants, implementation and knowledge transfer. The paper further outlines current Architectural, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) practices and suggested implementation strategies for FIAPP-based technologies to ensure success at all levels and stages of a project and an organization, with emphasis on knowledge transfer to such participants for sustainability of their efforts. The case studies described herein are supplemented with, and fueled by, educational and research efforts put in place to provide the industry with the engineers, managers and leaders of tomorrow.
