Summary Time, cost and quality are the traditional determinants of project success. The level of client satisfaction is a newly defined measurement of project success. Often the satisfaction level of construction clients is not high. The reasons for this situation are twofold, firstly due to the temporary organizational structure of construction team and secondly, the inefficient construction process. The traditional procurement route, whilst still the most popular in the building sector, is probably subject to most criticism. The primary aim of this research is to develop a new best practice model for building projects. This will enable the client’s project manager to identify best practice under the traditional procurement route before the work is executed. Within this model, the sequence of construction activities, the responsibilities of the parties and the critical aspect of each phase of the project are identified. This model can then be utilized at both the design and/ or the construction stage in order to secure project success.
