A systematic technique for identifying the environments of construction projects is described. It provides a method for isolating the major variables surrounding construction projects, and is briefly applied to the industries of Britain and Jamaica to illustrate its application. From this, it is inferred that the environment of a Jamaican construction project in systems terms is broadly similar to the environment of a construction project in Britain.
