Abstract:Location based planning has proven its value in theory and practice. However, the design of a location breakdown structure, which is a core concept within location based planning, remains unstructured. This thesis presents a method for the design of a location breakdown structure for complex refurbishment projects while remaining operational. The proposed method was developed based on existing knowledge in location based planning. The proposed method has been tested on an example refurbishment project at an international airport, which has led to an increase in the quality and level of detail of the method. The method starts with identification and categorization of constraints that have to be taken into account during construction. After that the project is split up in locations in a top-down approach, based on the existing and new design. This results in a hierarchical location breakdown structure that, together with the schedule, forms a location based project plan. It was found that the method is helpful in the design of a location breakdown structure for projects in complex environments, like the case project. A sound trade-off between feasibility of construction activities and availability and accessibility for the client is made by using the developed method while taking into account the environmental constraints.
