Aims & Scope
Informative and accessible, this publication analyses and discusses the integration of the main stages within the process of design and construction and multidisciplinary collaborative working between the different professionals involved.
Ideal for practitioners and academics alike, Architectural Engineering and Design Management examines specific topics on architectural technology, engineering design, building performance and building design management to highlight the interfaces between them and bridge the gap between architectural abstraction and engineering practice.
- Integration of architectural and engineering design
- Integration of building design and construction
- Building design management; planning and co-ordination, information and knowledge management, vale engineering and value management
- Collaborative working and collaborative visualisation in building design
- Architectural technology
- Sustainable architecture
- Building thermal, aural, visual and structural performance
- Education and architectural engineering
Who should subscribe?
This new journal will be a valuable resource for professionals and academics (teachers, researchers and students) involved in building design and construction, including the following disciplines:
- Building Engineering
- Building Service Engineering
- Building Physics
- Design Management and Design Coordination
- Facilities Management
Published papers will report on both fundamental research dealing with theoretical work and applied research dealing with practical issues and industrial innovations. In this way, readers explore the interaction between technical considerations and management issues.
An international survey was conducted by Professor Dino Bouchlaghem in 2002 to establish the presence and scope of architectural engineering as a discipline in built environment education and research. The survey triggered considerable interest from academics and practitioners around the world and led to the establishment of a task group endorsed by the International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction (CIB).
The survey revealed that architectural engineering was growing in importance in response to the changing nature of the construction industry, and required better integration between architecture, engineering and construction in order to manage the complexity of modern buildings and their procurement processes. Sustainable development targets have been imposing further challenges that require major shifts from the traditional ways of managing the built environment.
It became apparent that a new journal was needed to bring together experts and create a forum for the dissemination of research and developments in this field. The International Journal of Architectural Engineering and Design Management was then launched in 2005 with the support of Earthscan as the Publisher. The Journal received support from CIB from the outset, becoming one of their encouraged journals and publishing a number of special issues from various international conferences organised as part of the Council’s programme of events.
Since its launch, the Journal has published a broad collection of papers within the range of topics that constitute its scope, and the contributions come from a wide geographical spread. AEDM has now established itself as one of the main publication outlets for professionals in the built environment.
