|Abstract:||The literature stresses the importance of improvements in the effectiveness and efficiency of contractors if the construction industry is to fulfil its tasks in a cost-effective, timely and safe manner. Various factors are considered to be instrumental in the development of contractors. If the most important influencing factors in any country can be identified, measures can be taken to apply them in order to upgrade the contractors. The results of a study on the factors which have been important in the development of construction enterprises in Singapore are presented. A mailed questionnaire survey provided the basis for the study. The targeted respondents were local contractors, foreign contractors, and clients and consultants. It was found that the key factors could be grouped into four main categories: contractors' role; government's and institutions' help; practitioners' help and financial support; and clients' help. Recommendations are offered on measures which can improve the performance of contractors.|
