Abstract

The performance of building construction projects is highly affected by many factors. In Borama, 70% of construction projects does not meet the expected project cost, time, and scope. Therefore, this study aimed and investigated the effect of quality control practices on the performance of building construction projects in Borama District Somaliland. The study used a cross-sectional survey design with a sample of 92 workers in the 17 construction companies in the Borama district. The study uses a questionnaire as a data collection method. The result show that, there is no quality control standard/code in Somaliland due to these projects are adopting a foreign building code, but the foreign codes are not considering the Somaliland weather conditions, working environment and culture. And the study concluded that, current quality management (R = 0.568, p = 0.000 < a = 0.05), supervision of work (R = 0.671, p = 0.000 < a = 0.05), and construction quality (R = 0. 0.358, p = 0.001 < a - 0.05)   model show that a statistical significance on the performance of building construction projects in Borama district.  Secondly, the study found a significant positive correlation between quality control management on performance building construction projects construction companies. This shows that, if current quality management is practiced well, the performance of the building construction projects are improved.

Keywords: Current quality management, supervision of work, construction quality, project performance
