    Research is increasingly addressing attention to project networks, in terms of inter-organizational relationships. Very often, research is focused on customers and contractors at the center of the project networks and their strong dyadic relationships. Less attention has been paid to the non-central actors and triadic relationships, which might have significant role in project delivery and in the construction innovations. This research focuses on the emergence of relationship triad between contractor, supplier and designer. The goal of this research is to identify contractors’ motives to engage in triadic relationship, and practices to adopt contractor-supplier-designer triads in the construction project networks. Qualitative, exploratory research strategy is employed in the context of construction project networks, with contractors as adopters of relationship triads. Interviews are conducted with contractors, to discover the specifics of contractor-supplier-designer relationship triads in construction projects. The results indicate that contractors are motivated to enhance their dyadic relationships with suppliers and designer, but they are also motivated and capable to adopt triadic relationships with these actors. The research contributes by showing that relationship triads promote development and innovations in construction projects. As key contributions, this research suggests practices and project conditions through which beneficial relationship triads can be adopted.
