More on this journal...
The objectives of IJLCPE are to establish an effective channel of communication between scientific researchers, professional engineers, construction companies, managers and administrations, aiming to promote the philosophy of lifecycle performance oriented design and construction and to contribute to tracing a pathway towards more suitable maintenance and exploitation procedures and to establish rational and consistent bases to support management and related decision making.
IJLCPE provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers and policy makers, working in the field of civil construction management and exploitation, engineering and technical education, to disseminate information and to learn from each other's workContents
IJLCPE publishes original papers, review papers and technical reports. Special Issues devoted to important topics in scientific and technological advances, very important case studies and conference reports will occasionally be published.
