There are various problems in modern construction sites. Some of these problems affect a construction process directly while some have side effects such as global warming. The purpose of this study was to find the most important problems based on two different methods. Firstly, by using statically and comprehensive analysis of top cited articles the most important problems based onWeb of Science database and data comparison were given in execution and monitoring stage of a construction project. Secondly certain number of construction engineers were asked to define the most important problems by ranking eight determined problems based on their importance. In general lack of skilled workers on site were considered as the most important problem while shortage in site equipment as the least important one based on presented assumptions.
