Decision making is a key factor for achieving success in any discipline, especially in a field which requires handling large amounts of information and knowledge in building and construction management. Most construction processes and procedures are a compendium of many different tasks, processes, and requirements, involving a great variety of factors and aspects to consider. In this manner, making decisions in such environments can often be an arduous and difficult operation. For these reasons, the need for a mechanism capable of assisting the characterization of such complex scenarios arises. Multi-criteria decision making (MCDM) has emerged as a subdiscipline of operations research destined to facilitate the resolution of these issues. Moreover, due to the increasing uncertainty and complexity of objective characteristics, great attention has been paid to studying the application of MCDM in uncertain environments.
The main aim of this Special Issue is to explore the recent challenges and developments of intelligent MCDM approaches in buildings and construction management. Topics include but are not limited to:
- Decision analysis
- Uncertainty in MCDM
- New modeling in MCDM
- Measurement of performance in construction
- Building information modeling
- Reliability and maintenance engineering
- Transportation and logistics insights through MCDM
- Application of MCDM in building and construction management

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Buildings is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs).
