Abstract: There has been a growing demand on developments in remote areas. Apart from enjoying the associated benefits, architectural, construction and engineering (AEC) firms also face unique challenges to manage remote construction projects. This study adopted a case study approach to investigate the challenges and strategies of managing remote projects. The results showed that human resources, material supply and communication present most significant issues in remote construction projects. To overcome these issues, contractors are encouraged to engage local trades and suppliers. These results provide a useful reference to industry practitioners to manage remote projects.
