PERSONAL THESIS PROJECTS

1.     “Development of risk management framework for construction industry of Pakistan MS Civil  Engineering Thesis – Supervised by Prof Dr Babar Khan

Managing risks in construction projects is documented as a very important management process to achieve the project objectives mainly time, quality, cost, safety and environmental sustainability. Present research seeks to identify and evaluate these risks and the existing risk management framework for construction works in Pakistan. Through literature review twenty seven risks were identified which were categorized into three hierarchical levels (country, market and project). The critical nature of these risks to construction projects was evaluated and ranked through a survey all over Pakistan. Analysis of the data showed that the risks at Country level are more critical than that at Market level and the latter are more critical than that in Project level. Survey revealed that top 11 critical risks in construction projects are: Cost Overrun, Corruption, Political Instability, Inflation and Interest rate, Government Influence on Disputes, Disputed sites, Human Resource, Market Demand, Change in Law, Justice Reinforcement, and Low Construction Productivity.
