This research aims at studying the situation of cost management in building projects in Syria, evaluating the applied ways of cost management and finding the suitable means to improve it. To achieve that aim, a questionnaire was distributed to a number of workers in the building contraction sector in Syria to collect data and investigate the existing methodology in cost management in the building field. This research shows that cost management methodology is not applied in Syrian building projects and suggests some solutions that contribute in developing the condition of cost management based on universal methodologies in this field.
