Abstract

The choice of a suitable delivery method plays a considerable role in the performance of a construction project. Previous research has attempted the development of a systematic approach to project delivery method selection focusing on performance information. However, such attempts did not properly address public agencies and legislative impediments are almost entirely neglected as suggested variables in such models. This paper addresses these limitations by presenting a quantitative analysis to test whether federal and state legal limitations do influence project performance. Project characteristics from the U.S. General Services Administration Capital Construction Project database are presented. The database is analyzed using cross-tabulation to determine potential correlations among the variables, and specifically their relation to project delivery method choice and performance information. Contributions from this research are reflected in presenting a methodology for choosing alternative delivery methods while considering project characteristics and specifically the legislative impediments associated with a construction project and their influence on project performance.
