  • Introduction

    Managing the construction mega projects could be a very complicated process especially when there are too many construction companies and various parties included. Many construction companies fails and announces their bankruptcy during or after being involved in a massive construction project, due to lack of successful management and coordination. In order to minimize the risks of delays and high costs, this special issue focuses on proposing innovative methods and procedures that could be carried out between all the involved departments and parties. Moreover, the main objectives of the proposed methods are to successfully run the construction mega projects through all its phases up to the completion phase. Such procedures will ensure making use of the most of the available resources to make profits and to deliver the project within the set time frame. This could be achieve by conducting various simulations of project management network systems to (1) achieve smooth work progress in site and (2) to simplify the massive load work for a better understanding for all the managerial teams. Furthermore, the proposed innovative construction management methods includes but are not limited to tendering, estimation and pricing, bidding, construction works, contracts, subcontracts, equipment and manpower, site construction, engineering, planning, cost control, quantity surveying, procurement, quality control and assurance, and managing resources, manpower and PMV (plant, machinery and vehicles).
