Abstract

Enormous financial requirements, high technological and scientific level, high work volume are the main differentiations between infrastructural andnormal projects. Given these specifications, selection of suitable project delivery system (PDS) for construction of infrastructural projects is of paramount importance, and making mistake and miscalculation in this field will incur irreparable loss to the development projects. Therefore, adoption of suitable policy in decision-making process with regard to the construction operation of project is of paramount significance, so that development of systems and logistics tools for the decision-making process can help project commissioners to improve current activities in the best form possible. The paper presents a decision-making model to select the optimal PDS for infrastructural construction projects based on identification and comparison of various contracting systems. The viewpoints of 62 expert engineers, contractors, consultants about the advantage and drawbacks of five more common PDSs have been collected via questionnaires and interviews. At the end, a comprehensive methodology has been presented to fine the optimal PDS for each Infrastructural project using Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP).
