The existence of abandoned housing projects is a serious problem and will continue to be cancerous in Malaysia's construction industry. This trend is becoming increasingly worrying. In order to finish the abandoned construction project, the government has engaged a rescue contractor. However, some rescue contractors have trouble finishing abandoned building projects since it presents distinct difficulties to finishing conventional construction projects. Therefore, this study aims to identify challenges amongst rescue contractors in rescuing abandoned projects and to determine strategies to overcome the challenges in rescuing abandoned projects. This study uses quantitative methods through survey methods using a questionnaire. Thus, the questionnaire will be distributed to the contractor data based on Public Works Department (PWD). Around 345 respondents from the list are chosen to answer the questionnaires. The data analysis was done using the content analysis method and mean and ANOVA analysis. The results of the study found that the most significant challenges among the rescue contractor are lack of policy continuity and materials price increase in rescuing abandoned projects, with a mean of 4.84 for both. Meanwhile, addressing the fundamental root causes is one of the strategies in rescuing abandoned projects, with a mean of 4.63. The result of the One-Way ANOVA analysis has shown a significant difference between the challenges of rescuing abandoned projects by the Contract Method, where the value of f =6.558; p< 0.05. Therefore, the hypothesis is accepted, and significant differences exist in challenges in rescuing abandoned projects based on different procurement (p=0.002). This study can be a guide for any rescue contractors who are interested in restoring abandoned projects in order to help the government in reducing the number of abandoned housing projects in the country. The efforts of rescue contractors not only help to reduce the statistics of abandoned housing projects, but they can also realize the dreams of home buyers who want to occupy their new homes after a long period.
