Employees' motivation in construction sector in developing countries is faced with many problems unlike those experienced by their counterparts in developed countries on which most motivation studies have been concentrated. The aim of the study to explore the degree of motivation implemented on construction site engineers in Gaza construction companies. Delphi method was used to obtain judgment of panel of experts to achieve the objectives of the study. The study evaluated the extent to which the construction companies in Gaza Strip apply motivating systems for site engineers, the most important and effectual motivating factors for the site engineers and the effect of these motivating factors on productivity. Three rounds of Delphi procedure were utilized. In the first round, literature review in addition of 23 experts' opinions were used to build up the study questionnaire. In the second round, the participants were individually asked to take their time for rating their level of agreement along with all the factors within each focal point included under each main stream.
