Construction projects must assess risks to a greater extent than other projects because of the nature of uncertainties, which increase substantially with duration and complexity. There are numerous restricting factors, such as quality of human resources, materials, site conditions, climatic conditions, productivity of labour and equipment, designs and specifications.

Proper management of risks has the potential of ensuring successful delivery of the projects. Every construction activity is associated with risk factors, which may be internal or external. Due to uncertainties associated in every stage of the project, risk management is being implemented in various organisations to minimise the loss and increase the profit associated with the project.
