    Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

Project Description

PLEASE APPLY ONLINE TO THE SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING, PROVIDING THE PROJECT TITLE, NAME OF THE PRIMARY SUPERVISOR AND SELECT THE PROGRAMME CODE "EGPR" (PHD - SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING)

This is a project within the multi-disciplinary EPSRC and ESRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) on Quantification and Management of Risk & Uncertainty in Complex Systems & Environments, within the Institute for Risk and Uncertainty. The studentship is granted for 4 years and includes, in the first year, a Master in Decision Making under Risk & Uncertainty. The project includes extensive collaboration with prime industry to build an optimal basis for employability.

The project will involve the development of a Robust Client-Interface Design Decision Tool for use in assisting the planning stages of a construction project. The tool could be BIM (Building Information Modelling) driven and would use statistical data based on, but not limited to, current and preferred construction methods, material costs, large scale contractor input, efficiency in design across all disciplines (architecture, structures, facades, MEP, geo-environmental), life-cycle costing (maintenance schedule projections), sustainability, ease of refurbishment, restoration and re-use etc. A tool such as this would enable project delivery teams to instill greater confidence in their clients (and them) that they have chosen the best overall design solution at the outset of the project, hence reducing the risk and uncertainty regarding operational under performance.

Funding Notes

The PhD Studentship (Tuition fees + stipend of £ 14,296 annually over 4 years) is available for Home/EU students. In addition, a budget for use in own responsibility will be provided.
