The research is conducted in conceptual, empirical, corroboratory and reflexive phases using a combination of secondary and primary sources. Secondary data and questionnaire responses are analysed statistically but case study observations and corroboratory interviews are handled qualitatively. __To address the research aim, specific research objectives are set:_1.Identify the Chinese construction firms’ problem and outline a pathway for a complete answer to it._2.Undertake a systematic literature review of notions of competitiveness in various fields to develop a conceptual framework of CCFs._3.Conduct a preliminary desktop review of global construction firm best practices, comparing successful with unsuccessful firms._4.Describe the methodology for a complete answer to the Chinese construction firm question._5.Analyse CCFs’ Key Performance of Indicators (KPIs)._6.Apply the exploratory knowledge to fine-tune the preliminary model of international competitiveness of CCFs._7.Operationally test the refined CCFs’ international competitiveness model against a combination of quantitative and qualitative research evidence._8.Conduct focus group meeting to consider institutional, cultural, geographical, political and religious issues which could moderate CCFs’ international competitiveness._9.Distil research findings and make key policy recommendations.__The combination of desktop secondary research, analysis of KPIs, case studies, surveys and interviews will provide a complete answer to the research question of what factors influence the international competitiveness of Chinese construction firms.__
