Construction project delay-analysis techniques
MetadataShow full item record
The construction industry is considered one of the largest money-generating industries of the economy. Construction time is a highly critical aspect for all parties involved in a project. However, delays in construction projects seem to be inevitable, which results in conflict as every party claims that the other is responsible for the delay. Delays that can affect construction time may cause claims, some claims can reach litigation. There is a need in the construction industry to analyze delays using the most appropriate delay-analysis technique. The selection of delay-analysis method to analyze a delay is a critical factor that can dramatically affect the delay analysis results. There is a pressing need to resolve conflicts among different parties by implementing delay-analysis techniques that lead to fair analysis results depending on the amount of information that is available at the time the delay is being performed and the timing of applying the delay-analysis. This study focuses on two aspects of delay analysis; the first aspect is to describe different delay-analysis techniques that can be applied to resolve claims among different parties involved in a dispute, the second aspect is to compare different dynamic delay-analysis methods that can be applied to resolve claims and compare the result of applying those methods. The results of this research benefit different parties among the construction industry such as the owners, designers, contractors, and lawyers.
