Abstract:

Construction delays are common problems in civil engineering project in India. These problems occur commonly during project life-time leading to disputes and legal action. Therefore, it is necessary to study and analyzed causes of construction delays. The opinion of construction experts was obtained through interviews. Subsequently, a questionnaire survey was prepared. A questionnaire survey is conducted to consider the time performance of construction projects in India to identify the causes of delay and their important index for delay factors could be computed. A total 78 causes of delay were identified during the research. The delay factors were grouped into eight major groups. The top-10 list was dominated by factors related to the contractor, owner and the project group. However, three owner group factors and consultant group factors, late progress payment, financial problems of owner, and improper study of design affects estimated quantity, were the first three factors on the list, which also had a high impact on the three project objectives. The remaining factors on the list were poor qualification of the contractor technical staff and project team, poor terrain condition, conflict between contractor and consultant, Poor site arrangement, management, and supervision, lacks of involvement of design team during construction stage, delay in obtaining permits from provincial/municipality, and distribution to public activities. Recommendations to manage the delay factors were presented. Significant relationships, between the delay factors and the three project objectives also were observed and discussed.
