Improper selection of Extra Low Voltage (ELV) projects by contractors might lead to many problems including underestimating cost of the project, lack of experience and bad quality of work. ELV system requires in-depth knowledge of technologies and a strong team of domain experts, who design, integrate and deliver Integrated ELV Systems that meet diverse needs. Therefore, the objectives of this study are to determine the factors of selecting an ELV Project by contractors, determine problems associated with current practice of project selection and to establish solutions that could improve future ELV projects selection. The methodology of this study will be divided into two stages which is primary data and secondary data. Secondary data will be collected by literature review by focusing on writing related materials and primary data will be collected by distributing a number of questionnaires that will determine later to selected respondents within company undertaking ELV projects. The collected data will then be analyzed using frequency distribution and average index method. The results of the study show resource pricing continuity of work/possible future project and return of investment is the most critical factors; meanwhile cost overrun, losing tender and defective works are among common problems that occurs with the current selection process; and submit the bid early, understand the client well and to sell on value are among the solutions with regard to ELV project selection criteria. The improvement will enhance business strategy for ELV contractors in project selection and future planning.
