The construction industry in Malaysia plays a vital role in meeting with people’s needs and increasing the quality of life of the society as well. However, it must be noted that most of the construction projects are failed to complete on time. It is also not uncommon for construction projects to be delayed, or in the worst scenario even abandoned due to various reasons, which has been studied by researches from Malaysia and other countries as well. This study was conducted to identify the significant factors contributing towards the restoration of abandoned residential projects in Malaysia. This study also touches on the factors for non-revival/discontinuation of the abandoned projects too. In the purpose of doing so, data was collected using questionnaires from a certain targeted group for this study. The data collected was further analyzed, which resulted on the determination of the most important factors to the least. From the analysis too, the reliability of the questionnaire was also established, where it is suggested as a tool for further research on the related issue.
