Global requirements to improve telephone coverage, provide high speed data transmission and cutting edge communication solutions are increasing at a rapid rate. The requirement for new construction and upgrade of existing communications infrastructure in on the rise and there is currently minimal industry documentation that investigates risk management on these type of projects.

The main objective of this research project is to investigate risk management on the construction and upgrade of communication facilities. This project considers the effect of project specific elements as well as project management constraints to understand the effect of risk on the project performance. An extensive literature review was completed to understand the key principles and dependencies which affect risk management before case study data was collected. The case study data was then analysed to understand how elements of the project affect the risks and how these risks can be best managed in the future.

The combination of the literature review and case studies has provided an opportunity for an analysis to understand how risks are currently being effectively managed, and where there is potentially room for improvement in the future. One of the key outcomes of the research is attempting to identify elements of the project which affect the risk impact or probability.
