Research Report 2006


Head of Department: Professor Paul Bowen


Departmental Profile


Research and allied scholarly work in the Department is focused mainly on improving construction industry practice although research in the field of property studies continues to grow alongside teaching in this area.


Ongoing research covers construction industry development, building procurement, strategic property management, project management, quality management, sustainable building and human resource issues within the sector. Strong research links exist with academic institutions in the UK, Australia and Central and East Africa, and India, as well as with institutions within South Africa.


During 2006, papers have been presented at key international conferences in the UK, China, Australia and Norway. Journal papers have been published in leading international journals including as well as South African journals frequently with international co-authorship underlining the Departments international profile and collaborative research philosophy. Nationally, the Department continues its engagement with local organization such as SAPOA and the CIDB and has presented research at local conferences in Bloemfontein, Johannesburg, Stellenbosch and Cape Town during 2006.


Ultimately, the quality and quantity of research is dependent on the Department’s research students. The Department successfully graduated 2 PhDs during 2006 and registered 5 new PhDs in 2006, supported through NRF and USHEPia programmes. The Department hosted its second Post Doctoral Fellow during 2006 and continued to benefit from Prof. Akin Akintoye’s presence as Visiting African Scholar.
