Abstract

Contractors play a significant role in construction projects and selection of the most appropriate contractor for the project is a critical decision for clients. The pre-qualification of construction contractors is accounted as a very important step in contractor selection for every project. The main purpose of pre-qualification is to identify an array of eligible contractors, which is required for post-qualification steps and further considerations. Although there have been numerous models for contractor pre-qualification, there are inadequate researches to present a contractor pre-qualification model with consideration of the project objectives or the project owner's requirements. A new contractor pre-qualification model was developed with the aim of resolving this issue. This model employs the quality function deployment (QFD) method, and considers both the project owner's requirements and the contractor's abilities. The results reveal that consideration of the project objectives or the project owner's requirements and expectations can influence contractor pre-qualification.
