Abstract – Risk management can be considered as one of the important management process in order to achieve the project objectives in terms of time, cost, quality, safety and environmental sustainability. Mostly aspects of the construction of risk management have been discussed rather than that I used to find a systematic and holistic approach to identify risks and analyze the likelihood of occurrence and impact of these risks. This project can be useful to find these risks spread throughout the project life cycle and many risks occurs at more than one phase with the construction stage as the most risky phase, followed by the feasibility stage. It is concluded that clients, designers and governmental bodies must work cooperatively from the feasibility phase onwards to address potential risks in time and contractors and subcontractors with robust construction and management knowledge must be employed early to make sound preparation for carrying out safe, efficient and quality construction activities.
