Abstract—Construction delays can be defined as the late completion of work compared to the planned schedule or contract schedule. Construction delays can be minimized only when their causes are identified. The objective of this study was to identify the major causes of construction delays, the effects of delays, and methods of minimizing construction delays. Construction delay is a major problem faced by the construction industry. In most construction projects, there are delays and their impact level varies from project to project ranging from a few days to years. It is generally understood that the construction delay is the most critical factor affecting the delivery of the project in time, within budget, and expected quality. It can be rarely found that a project was completed within the specified time in the available budget.
