Abstract

The construction industry’s focus on pre-planning, with its advantages and disadvantages, has
not been investigated in a literature review which gives a state of art understanding of the
topic.
The aim of the paper is to review related papers, to fulfill gaps in the literature which could
be researched further in a Ph.D. project.
The review model is conducted on papers, which all support an input, processing and output
stage. 561 journal papers were found, and by the processing stages 95 A-papers were
categorized in six correlated themes.
The main finding of the review was that pre-planning has a linear positive impact on the
construction projects´ chances to meet budget and quality, and to reduce duration and risk in
the project process.
Gaps associated with pre-planning and construction projects were found by the review, and
the problem should be further studied by a trend analysis to validate the gaps.
