Editorial Note (IGCESH Special Issue)
On behalf of the IGCESH 2018 secretariat, we would like to express our gratitude to the International Journal of Built Environment and Sustainability (IJBES) and Penerbit UTM Press for facilitating the publication of this special issue. We recognised the effort put forward by the editorial team and the scientific review committees involved, from selecting and forwarding the manuscripts all the way to the publication of this special issue. This helps to ensure selected manuscripts fit within the scope of IJBES and therefore comply with the strict publication requirements.
The 7th IGCESH 2018 was successfully held on 13 to 15 August 2018 and had attracted more than 300 papers. This yearly event had managed to gather 115 papers under the theme of science and technology, and following a thorough review, 20 papers covering on the built environment, construction, geoinformation and surveying were selected to be in the special issue. The editorial board of the special issue is pleased to invite readers to peruse the items of interest, seeking to provide insights on the latest in construction management and technology, sustainability, real estate, tourism, urbanisation and rural planning, geographical information system and others. We believed that the discussion provided through this special issue is significant to support the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) initiatives by the United Nation (UN) which is instrumental towards the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
