In this issue, we are pleased to include six papers that cover wide range of research area in construction industry.

In this issue:

Using the partial least square (PLS) of the structural equation modelling (SEM), Lee Yee Lin, et. al., develop an innovation model that considers the effect of capabilities, such as entrepreneurship and networking, in achieving superior performance in construction SMEs. The findings reveal that entrepreneurship and networking play a significant role in spurring the contracting SMEs to innovate successfully and to develop superior firm performance. The new model is expected to offer insight for both practitioners and government policymakers on how to trigger a higher rate of innovation activities to ensure continuous growth among construction firms of SME size.
