Abstract: Construction projects that are not well controlled would have poor outcomes in terms of cost, quality and time performance and this may be due to poor control systems. The aims of this study are to: (i) study the control systems adopted by construction industry; (ii) identify control systems that give rise to better construction project performance; and (iii) develop project performance predictive models based on control systems adopted. Data were collected via Electronic mails, targeting at contractors who are involved in constructions projects in Singapore. It was found that control system is one of the major tools in managing a construction project’s cost, time and quality performance. In addition, control system practices that will have a significant impact on project performance in terms of cost, time and quality were also identified and discussed. This research has also established three models to offer predictions and insight on the variables to achieve good project performance level. With the control system practices identified and predictive models established, construction firms may thus improve their project performances and ensure better project outcomes if they adopt the effective control systems based on the factors identified in this research.
