Taking the Shanghai Expo Village project as an example, based on UCINET software, analyzed communication network density, centrality and clique among organizations of large projects in the perspective of social network analysis. Conclusions were made as following: The overall communication network density is relative high, but the times of communication varies dramatically between different participants; The communication performance of project coordination meetings is better than project regular meetings; The centrality of project management team is quite high, which means it has the biggest power in the communication network, but that will affect the overall communication efficiency. And some related teams may form some cliques in the communication network and these cliques will affect the communication, the actor who appears in almost every clique plays an important role in the communication network. The research can provide reference for organization design and communication management for large projects.
