Abstract

This paper reports on a questionnaire survey undertaken to evaluate e-Business use in the Ghanaian construction industry. The views of construction professionals and local construction firms in Ghana were consulted in this questionnaire survey. Additionally, the survey is intended to show evidence of e-Business activities and professional groups within the industry likely to use e-Business. The initial result shows that, there are different levels of e-Business initiatives and understanding within the industry. Further, e-Business related activities are done in haphazard manner due to low technological capacity. This evaluation provides a unique opportunity to assess the capacity of contractors and other professional groups for e-business technology transfer either through joint ventures or collaborations, considering the significant amount of investment and foreign construction firm activities within the Ghanaian construction industry.
