The construction site is seen as a key area where money is made or lost due to various activities. This calls for careful initiative and proper planning to improve their performances. The study investigated site management practices in Swaziland for effective project implementation. Data was collected through a structured questionnaire, aimed at 120 project managers, construction managers, consultants, and contractors in the Swaziland construction industry. Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) version 22 through Varimax rotation was used for the data analysis. Findings show that the Government of Swaziland and the Construction Industry Council should introduce new construction procedures to minimize the repetition of problems and challenges encountered on construction sites in Swaziland.
