MetadataShow full item record
In construction industry, many factors can affect the success of construction projects and for that many researches and studies have been conducted by professionals to identify the critical success factors (CSFs). Those studies have generated lists of variables, factors and indicators that can be used to establish a conceptual model or framework to measure success of projects. The construction industry is one of the fastest growing and significant sectors in Qatar and is an integral part of the development, according to the Qatari Government officials. Qatar is expected to spend $225bn on development projects over the next five to seven years and will see rapid growth in its non-oil sector. The aim and objective of this project is to explore construction sector in Qatar and identify the CSFs in terms of projects’ stakeholders and their objectives that can be used to support, evaluate and measure the success of project delivery systems (PDSs) which will ensure appropriate allocation of limited resources. To achieve the objective of this project, many literatures, journals, and case studies in construction field have been reviewed. Then, 40 success related factors were collected and grouped under seven major categories, namely, project related factors, business and work environment related factors, client related factors, project management factors, design team-related factors, contractor-related factors, project manager related factors. After that, data has been collected through a survey questionnaire that included the listed factors and has been sent online to various experts in construction field with different experience in different organizations. After receiving responses, the collected data was analyzed using Relative Importance Index (RII) and Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) that prioritizes the CSFs in sequential manner, from the most top critical to the less critical ones. This will enable the projects’ stakeholders to identify the key factors that need to be carefully considered and managed.
