Causes of Delay And Time Performance on Construction Projects- The Ghanaian Case

ABSTRACT

There is an increase in the number of construction projects undergoing delays and this has led to budget and time overruns in Ghana. Using the data set of 230 questionnaires received from respondents, this study examined the causes of delay and time performance on governmentfunded projects. The Mean Score Ranking as well as the Relative Importance Index (RII) was used to make inferences from the data collected. The results pointed out that the most significant causes of delay are insufficient funding from clients, delay in payments due the contractors, and poor project planning. Effects of these delays as deduced from the data analyses are cost overruns, time overruns and loss of revenue. Six strategies to mitigate these delays are also developed in this study. This study provided practitioners with mitigation measures in order to achieve successful construction projects.
