Abstract

Taipei 101, the tallest building in the world in 2004, is a super-large project that required many resources, exceeding a single contractor's capacity, and the project owner had to seek additional specialist contractors for the resource gaps. This paper presents an analytical model for the owner's teaming strategies on the inclusion of additional contractors. The proposed model, based on the resource-based theory and the fuzzy Delphi method, allows the owner to identify critical resources required by the project, evaluate the capacities of the contractors, and identify the resource gaps. The paper also compares the analytical result with the owner's actual decisions, and explains their differences.
