DODOO, E.N.D.; VAN WAVEREN, C.C. e CHAN, K-Y.. An empirical study of factors and cognisant measures for project quality in the design phase: A case of building projects in the Department of Building and Engineering Services of Botswana. S. Afr.

There were numerous complaints regarding the quality of building projects performed by the Department of Building and Engineering Services (DBES) in Botswana. This empirical study has two objectives: first, to evaluate participants in DBES projects by using 16 identified factors in the project design phase that may influence the quality of building projects; second, to explore the inter-relationships between the 16 factors in the project design phase and the five measures of which the design phase takes cognisance. The study applied a quantitative research methodology. A total of 115 survey questionnaires were distributed to collect data. A descriptive and a multivariate analysis was performed.
