dc.description.abstractThe presence of risk in projects has a significant effect of construction projects objectives in terms of cost, time, quality and specification. With rapid increase in the size and complexity of construction projects so does the risks associated with these projects increase and this has led to the need to find ways to effectively manage the associated risk so that project managers can take sound decisions. How these risks are managed in projects to a large extent depends on the nature of project that is been executed, the severity of identified risks and its overall impact, therefore selecting appropriate risk management method is important. The research is about risk management in initial phases of construction project. An in depth understanding of this phenomenon would contribute to a more effective and efficient risk management which would assist to more projects to be delivered on time.
