<jats:title content-type="abstract-subheading">Design/methodology/approach</jats:title>
<jats:p>A literature review in combination with semi-structured interviews was used to identify on-site problems. This enabled triangulation and strengthened both construct validity and internal validity.</jats:p>

<jats:title content-type="abstract-subheading">Findings</jats:title>
<jats:p>On-site problems can be categorised in one of the four following categories: material flows, internal communication, external communication or complexity.

<jats:sec>
<jats:title content-type="abstract-subheading">Practical implications</jats:title>
<jats:p>The results show that SCP can aid construction project management in handling on-site problems earlier in the project process.</jats:p>
