Construction Management Demartment, Obafemi Awolowo University,
In the socio-economic and political development of any nation. Construction, as an infrastructure, derives its importance as a determinant of wealth of nations because of the three of its features, which are: its large size, that it provides predominantly investment goods and its customers, which are mainly governments. Construction management has shown that it is essential to consider the matrix of infrastructure development, which includes: design, finance, technology and management, at the planning stage of any infrastructural development.
