Abstract

Developing mitigation measures are to avoid or minimize the magnitude of adverse consequences of delay causes that could threat the project objectives in terms of time, cost and quality. It is also vital to be aware of mitigation measures within the construction industry. The aim of the study reported in this paper is to develop mitigation measures for delays in building construction projects in the city of Isfahan, Iran. A questionnaire survey was used to carry out the study which was filled out by professional parties such as clients, contractors, architects, project managers, consultants and developers in the construction industry. Feedbacks from respondents gave variety of measures for each cause of delay to mitigate the adverse and disruptive consequences of delay causes in building construction projects in Isfahan. Time and cost overrun were the common negative effects of delays in building construction projects in Isfahan. The study has found that twenty one significant mitigation measures based on the different points of view from respondents of the questionnaire survey, in order to avoid or minimize the causes of delays in building construction projects in Isfahan, it has been proposed that the top six most effective mitigation measures of avoiding or minimizing these delays were further elaborated. This include: considering the clients views while providing designs, setting the project budget according to proper and accurate estimations, efficient and effective project management among the parties in the project, proper selection of competent and capable contractors appropriate for the project, appropriate delegating of project parties regarding to their specialties and skills and also having sufficient knowledge of project environment and project parties before the project starts. It is hope that this finding will be able to address issues and problems of delays in building construction projects in general in Iran.
