Abstract :

The present work raises the issue of soft factors in the selection of construction equipment for the high rise residential towers. The soft fac informal, intangible and qualitative in nature. Some of the example like working on transportation problem, fluctuation in markets, safety consideration, whether conditions etc. In this study evaluation of soft factors for the equipment selection process is done and simultaneously analytical hierarchy process (AHP) is applie alternative for soft factors. For study purpose two different sites namely Panvel city and Thane city is selected. Based on the importance of the project a questioner interview has been conducted and s integration of AHP is develop and also a analysis has been done. This analysis listed variety of soft factors in the present day construction work which is usually ignored by the construction industry and model for construction equipment. The which has further helped in deciding the rank of the soft factors for the construction equipment the construction field. The result of consistency ratio is also less than or equal to 0.1 therefore the judgment is also acceptable and the Keywords- soft factors, analytical hierarchy process, tower, cranes. “The cost of the project varies from 10 to 30 % of the total cost of the project, depending upon the extent of mechanization. In modern fully mechanized project the cost of the equipment goes up to 30 % proper planning, selection, procurement, installation, operation, maintenance and equipment replacement policy plays an important role in managem completion of project. With the growing use of machinery it has become necessary for construction engineer to be thoroughly familiar with the construction application and upkeep of the wide range of modern equipment”[9 “Selection of equipment for construction projects generally involves two classes of factors or considerations. The first class comprises tangible, quantitative, formal considerations. Typical factors of this class include technical specifications of the equipment, dimensions of the site and constructed facility, and cost calculations; they are hereby termed “hard” factors/ considerations. The second class covers a large array of “other” factors, which are mostly intangible, qualitative, and analyze as they are highly depend on climatic conditions, condition of site, location of site, construction company, workmanship etc. As this is a high rise residential tower major focus was given on tower crane as construction equipment. This study explores the role of soft factors consideration in the selection of construction equipment with a focus on high rise residential tower project. Most importantly this study explores the answer of following question.1) what soft and Research -ISSN No.:2349-9745, Date: 2-4 July, 2015 s Kamble1, R. V. Devalkar2 KBGT COE.
