Operation research especially linear programming models are considered one of the most important tools used in optimization applications at many fields of production engineering and mass production, also linear programming applications was developed to construction engineering field. Linear programming implementation shows the practice of wide variety for construction problems especially cost with time issues and it is more applicable to generate a shortest computational effort and time with low cost. This paper focuses of optimizing number of works in order to reduce the maximum cost per apartment. This helps construction manager to decide the optimum bifurcation of each work for respective cost and completing project within certain fixed budget. Target cost control of construction projects is an important part of project management, and it plays a crucial role on the benefit of construction projects so here we try to minimize the cost involved using the simplex method. This project gives initial strategy to do so for small scale construction project first, and after successful implementation, it can be applied to the large-scale construction project.
