Construction management in general & construction time in particular are part of important
aspects that are required in the industry of construction projects. The importance of management
is to ensure that all the planning is well executed to complete the project. The importance of
construction time lies in in managing the activities of the project, so that it won't be delayed after
the deadline. Delays are crucial industry breakers as they can have effects on money and
This research is focusing on identifying some factors that contribute to delay and their effects on
construction projects. To be specific, the case study is focusing on the delay factors and effects in

The result of this research found that there are 9 main groups of factors that contribute to delay in
both projects such as changes and variations, contractual relationships, political issues and many

delay effects in both projects. At the end of the research, several recommendations have been
