dc.description.abstract The Construction field is one of the main business activities contributing for around 4.46 percent of the overall Lebanese GDP in 2015 (World Bank; Lebanon, 2015). Stakeholders and construction experts are always trying to enhance the construction industry in Lebanon through attaining improved values in terms of productivity, cost, time, environmental impacts and structural features. The adopted construction method plays a vital role in determining the outcomes of a project; there are two methods of construction, either the cast-in-situ process or the precast technology. Precast systems are dedicated to offer high promises to the construction industry regarding the former designated aspects. However, in Lebanon the precast process occupies only 7-10percent of the construction projects, which indicates a deficiency in the utilization in Lebanon despite its high potentials. Thus, our research is directed to realize the literal precast advantages that attract construction projects versus the shortcomings which will help us determine why it’s of a little participation in the Lebanese construction field. The results of our research contributed to major inferences through our adopted quantitative and qualitative approaches of data collection. We rigorously determined the precast potentials and the shortcomings by adequate obtained rating scales, and compared the attitudes of different Lebanese construction companies towards precast technology in the market.
