The deformation of soils is essentially dependent on the stress/deformation history in the past. The construction activity is nothing else but such a mechanical action given to foundation ground as the stress/deformation history. In this paper, considered is an imaginary construction of man-made reclamation land on soft ground foundation and examined is how difference of construction sequences effects on the final quality of the soil structure. Particularly, developments of inhomogeneous settlement, stress and pore water distribution after the completion of construction work are compared through a series of soil/water coupled elasto-viscoplastic finite element simulations. The final target of this study aims at specifying necessary maintenance works resulting in reducing the total life-cycle-cost (L. L. C.)
