Cascade events, Low temp risks, Multi-hazard combinations
The aim of this innovation project is to explore the feasibility of using long-term multi-variable historical weather data in scheduling construction programmes, both in terms of timing and, for larger schemes, location. This will reduce costs related to delays caused by extreme weather conditions or combinations of non-extreme events, which can significantly affect construction productivity.
