Most countries are facing challenges in building maintenance project, since Maintenance projects are more service work oriented than other building construction projects and works in these projects mostly entail interaction with people, and most of the work is determined according to people’s demands. Nowadays, building projects are becoming much more complex and difficult. The project team is facing unprecedented changes. The study of project success and critical success factors (CSFs) are considered to be a means to improve the effectiveness of project. It is believed that a maintenance project is influenced by the three main partners: the owner, the user, and the contractors. Therefore, this paper presents a review of literatures related to the factors affecting the success of building maintenance projects. From literatures, 84 significant factors which affect the project success for maintenance projects will be identified. For future research, questionnaire survey can be conducted to assess the identified factors and also structural equation model can be used to develop model and study the causal relationships between the factors which affect the success of building maintenance projects
