Abstract: The focus of the paper i on the current progress of a research project of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research's (CSIR) Division of Building and Construction Technology in developing a performance assessment model for contractors. The South African Construction Excellence Model (SACEM) is based on the South African Excellence Model (SAEM), an internationally recognised framework for business performance assessment. The model's basic structure, function, benefits and its relationship with industry development strategy is elaborated. The promotion of "best practice" culture is advocated by the authors as a critical aspect of improving overall performance of contractors. SACEM is seen as a relevant tool, a starting point for adopting this as a culture of excellence.
