Built Environment Project and Asset Management (BEPAM) provides a niche forum to address interfaces between project management and asset management of building and civil engineering infrastructure. It is a CIB Encouraged Journal.
BEPAM deliberates on, disseminates and validates cutting edge research and development in construction project management and infrastructure asset management, given the increasingly critical intersections and convergence between these domains, e.g. with increasing ‘whole life’ focus and sustainability imperatives. It connects both established and upcoming researchers with progressive practitioners in these fields and proactively links research and practitioner communities worldwide.
Our core editorial team drew on valuable strengths from the outset, having published a precursor journal - the Journal of Building and Construction Management, and being supported by the Centre for Infrastructure and Construction Industry Development based at The University of Hong Kong. We also added new blood from our inaugural year in 2011, bringing on board additional expertise in covering the extra dimensions, special thrusts and extended reach of BEPAM.
BEPAM publishes high-quality papers on:
- rigorous research, including empirical and theory-building exercises
- comprehensive reviews of relevant research and/or practice domains
- in-depth case studies of industry innovations and/or research applications.
This range provides a common platform that boosts mutual awareness and synergies among like-minded groups across interfaces of our multi-disciplinary domain.
BEPAM targets interface issues between project management and asset management of building and civil engineering infrastructure, but also welcomes papers that may focus on either project management or asset management issues. Target areas include but are not limited to the following:
- Project planning and project impact assessments
- Infrastructure demand analysis (with emphasis on sustainability)
- Stakeholder management (including appropriate engagement)
- Procurement management (with longer-term criteria, e.g. in public private partnerships etc.)
- Design management (including whole life considerations)
- Construction management (including whole life considerations)
- Infrastructure and societal needs
- Sustainable infrastructure and life cycle optimisation
- Critical infrastructure protection and disaster mitigation management
- Preventive maintenance, asset rehabilitation and replacement management.
- BEPAM provides a unique one-stop forum that links leading-edge research to cutting-edge practice in the growing general domain of physical infrastructure development, empowering and inspiring authors and readers towards synergistic research, development and dissemination.
- The journal supplies the missing link between built environment project management and built environment asset management, addressing steadily growing imperatives for researchers and practitioners from each hitherto compartmentalised sub-sector to engage with, learn from and improve the other in efficiently delivering and sustaining needed physical infrastructure.
- BEPAM is a CIB Encouraged Journal.
