Designing an effective construction site layout planning is essential to the successful implementation of construction projects. Construction site layout planning involves the optimal layout of facilities (i.e., fixed, and temporary facilities). Several techniques are used in addressing the construction site layout planning problems. With the advent of the different techniques used in addressing these problems, three major categories have been identified in this study: knowledge-based models, mathematical models, and hybrid models.
Most of the reviewed peer-reviewed articles in this study focused on static construction site layout planning problems, while a significant number also focused on dynamic site layout planning problems. Nearly all the reviewed articles focused on solving the objective function of the optimal layout of facilities. Furthermore, this study made use of a systematic review to extract essential data from the reviewed articles. Analytical data on the research methods, improvement focus, construction site layout planning problems, methods and objective functions were identified and critically analysed to assist practitioners in the industry and future research.
