1. Mackley, Andrew R. Use of incentive/disincentive contracting to mitigate work zone traffic impacts.

Degree: 2012, University of Missouri – Columbia

[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT REQUEST OF AUTHOR.] Incentive/disincentive clauses (I/D) are designed to award payments to contractors if they complete work ahead of schedule and to deduct payments if they exceed the completion time. A previously unanswered question is, "Did the costs of the actual work zone impacts that were avoided justify the incentives paid?" This paper answers that question affirmatively based on an evaluation of 20 I/D projects in Missouri from 2008 to 2011. Road user costs (RUC) were used to quantify work zone impacts and included travel delays, vehicle operating costs, and crash costs. These were computed using work zone traffic conditions for partial‐closure projects and detour volumes and routes for full‐closure projects. Conditions during construction were compared to after construction. Crash costs were computed using Highway Safety Manual methodology. Safety Performance Functions produced annual crash frequencies that were translated into crash cost savings. In considering an average project, the percentage of RUC savings was around 13% of the total contract amount, or 444,389 of 3,464,620. I/D provisions were very successful in saving RUC for projects with full-closure, projects in urban areas, and emergency projects. Rural, non-emergency projects successfully saved RUC but not at the same level as other projects. The I/D contracts were also compared to all Missouri Department of Transportation contracts for the same time period. The results show that I/D projects had a higher on-time completion percentage and a higher number of bids per call than average projects. But I/D projects resulted in 4.52% higher deviation from the project budget and possibly more changes made after the award. A survey of state transportation departments and contractors showed that both agreed to the same issues that contribute to the success of I/D contracts. Overall, in terms of work zone impact mitigation, I/D contracts are very beneficial at a relatively low cost. Advisors/Committee Members: Sun, Carlos (advisor), Edara, Praveen K. (Praveen Kumar) (advisor).

2. Svensk, William Smedberg. Avfallshantering i kommersiellafastigheter : En utredning av utvecklingsmöjligheterna för avfallshanteringen i köpcentrum.

Degree: Building Technology and Design, 2017, KTH

  AMF Fastigheter is shortly for the procurement of a waste contractor for all of its commercial properties. The investigation will identify the problem of how the waste is handled in shopping centers and inform AMF Fastigheter about how this can be improved. Through study visits and interviews, necessary information is gathered to make concrete proposals. A comprehensive analysis of the waste generated in the properties describes in the report that large waste volumes consist of combustible. The authors provide suggestions on how this can be avoided, as well as highlighting fractions that should be recycled to a greater extent. According to the authors, there may be problems about the waste contractors' intentions in the properties visited, as recycling is not a priority. The human factor is considered to be a major problem where it is difficult to achieve long-term changes in tenants' behavior regarding waste sorting. Initial explanation of these issues is presented in the report and details that the property owner should consider in the procurement of waste contractor.

AMF Fastigheter står inom kort inför upphandling av en avfallsentreprenör för samtliga av sina kommersiella fastigheter. Utredningen ska identifiera problematiken i hur avfallet hanteras i köpcentrum och upplysa AMF Fastigheter om hur detta kan förbättras. Genom studiebesök och intervjuer samlas nödvändig information för att komma med konkreta förslag. En övergripande analys av det avfall som uppstår i fastigheterna beskriver i rapporten att stora avfallsvolymer består av brännbart. Författarna ger i rapporten förslag på hur detta kan undvikas, samt lyfter fram fraktioner som bör återvinnas i större utsträckning. Enligt författarna kan det finnas problem kring avfallsentreprenörernas intentioner i de besökta fastigheterna då återvinning prioriteras för lite. Den mänskliga faktorn upplevs vara en stor problematik där det är svårt att nå långsiktiga förändringar kring hyresgästernas beteende och avfallssortering. Ingående förklaring om dessa problem presenteras i rapporten samt detaljer fastighetsägaren ska tänka på vid upphandling av avfallsentreprenör.
