Greetings from Volume 8, Issue 1, April 2017 the Journal of Civil Engineering, Science and Technology (JCEST)!


JCEST is an open-access, peer-reviewed e-journal for publication of original research, reviews, and short communications on novel studies and recent developments that significantly contribute to the national and international Civil Engineering, Science and Technology community.


This issue features five articles comprising 3 original research articles and 2 case studies with authors from Malaysia, Nigeria and Bangladesh. In the first article A. O. Ujene and A. A. Umoh examine the utility of site characteristics in developing a neural network model of percentage cost-time overrun for building projects. D.Y.S. Mah and T.Y. Ho look at an alternative use of a roundabout as a storm water detention pond. H.H.Heng, W.F.Pan, F.L. Siaw and C.P.Hii investigates the Johor river basin for the feasibility of coastal and estuary drinking water reservoirs. M. S. Shirin, M. M. Ali, M. R. Hasan and Md. Saiful Islam study the effect of organic soil on strength properties of compressed cement-soil block. Finally, Z. Tafheem, T.A. Arafat, A. Chowdhury and A. Iqbal model the effect of base isolators on the structural response of reinforced concrete multistoried buildings under seismic loads.


JCEST welcomes manuscripts that explore new frontiers in Civil Engineering research. With your support and participation, JCEST can provide an outlet for the dissemination of meaningful and significant research in the field. My gratitude and appreciation are to the authors, reviewers and editors for their outstanding commitment towards making this issue available.
