Abstract: Since foundation projects are one of the most complicated construction activities, many unforeseeable and invisible conditions and uncertainties will be investigated during the construction processes. The importance of examining risk management in foundation projects had pressing harder as short-piling experiences gained from the Hong Kong construction. Various types of quality risk should not be avoided throughout the construction development, including site condition, managerial and contractual factors. This paper identifies the typical factors affecting the three main categories defined in risk management in conducting foundation projects from various construction professionals. Intentional quality risk found to be difficult in handling the real responsibilities. This study will also present alternative solutions for controlling these quality risks and the effectiveness of these solutions has been tested. The findings from the study provide useful references to the construction industries.
