Abstract: In an attempt to develop statistical construction time prediction models for high-rise private building projects in Hong Kong and launch an investigation of construction time performance (CTP), a desktop taxonomic review was conducted to examine some previously developed models and to provide an overview of the current state of construction duration modelling methods. The succession of the models was captured in a number of key aspects under investigation. Of similar concern as estimating the construction time accurately, lifting construction productivity in the construction industry as a whole is targeted. Among the approaches to faster construction, only those relevant to the case in Hong Kong are reported herein. Such a review in addition to serving as a quick reference to construction time prediction and faster construction has provided valuable insights into the subjects for the on-going research study.
