Abstract:

The delay in construction project completion is a common phenomenon that occurs in the construction industry, especially where the government projects are concerned. This survey will center on the Ninth Malaysia Plan project delay as evidenced in the Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia campus. It will generally examine delay-related issues, which include the definition, type and category of delay, as well as the contributing factors (theoretically or practically) that lead to delay in the project implementation. Data was compiled from literature review, interview and survey. Data obtained from the survey was analysed using the ‘relative Important Index (RII)’ whereby the source with the highest RII is one that mostly influences the delay. The critical source of delay is due to the fact that the project contractor does not have enough working capital, the late advance payment, the delay in the client or consultant endorsing the study, issues involving contractor management, the scarcity of construction materials and new instructions for additional construction work.
