Construction Project Delivery Systems: An Analysis of Selection Criteria Weighting

Skitmore, Martin & Love, Peter E.D. (1995) Construction Project Delivery Systems: An Analysis of Selection Criteria Weighting. In ICEC Symposium "Construction Economics - the essential management tool", 21-23 May 1995, Gold Coast, Australia.


A postal questionnaire survey is described involving a sample of 41 clients, 34 contractors and 35 consultants and concerning their experiences and attitudes to a variety of project delivery systems and the criteria used for selection. The results indicate that a simple set of the criteria are generally adequate and sufficient for procurement path selection and that there is a reasonable consensus on their appropriate weighting for each path. It is also shown that similar clients generally do not have similar project delivery needs but nevertheless only one delivery method, that of novation, best satisfies the needs of those involved in the study.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
