Abstract

For selecting the appropriate structural concrete prefabricated system, construction managers have to identify and extract the most important and most effective features. This paper addresses how the best system can be selected using Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) method. This method has been utilized for selecting the appropriate structural system among three pre-fabricated concrete construction system, including Large Panels, 3D Panels and Insulating Concrete Formwork (ICF). These systems considered to examine the importance of the criteria of efficient construction including cost and time, technical specifications and performance facilities. In this paper expert choice program has been used to approach the best system.
The result of this study shows that the cost of production the pre-construction percentage, and the weight of elements and moreover the less need for heavy machinery and modularity of components have the maximum rank among the performance criteria. In addition, 3D Panel has been selected as the most appropriate structural system, and then ICF system and Large Panel have been selected as the second and third choice, respectively.
