Large-scale urban construction comprised of multiple construction projects of different types poses a challenge to progressmanagement. While the progress of a construction project can be measured as the percentage of a facilitys physical completion, thisstandard is less reliable an indicator in gauging the progress of an urban construction project, as the function of urban facilitiesdetermines their role in the completion of an urban system. This paper suggests a new measurement framework consisting of fivehierarchically structured models in order to better assess construction progress for large-scale urban projects. To test the validity ofthe proposed framework, it has been applied to a real-life urban development project carried out in Sejong Special Self-GoverningCity, South Korea. The weight set on functional importance was quantified according to the analytic hierarchy process method. Thisstudy also conducted a survey of 23 practitioners who managed the case project. The contribution of this research is to propose aframework that redefines the progress of urban construction projects by focusing on functional importance in urban systems andformulating a qualitative method of calculating progress for urban construction projects. Such achievements are expected to provideuseful information to project managers concerning the extent to which an urban construction project has progressed and the extent towhich the progress of an individual project affects the progress of an urban project as a whole.
