If you know of some relatives or friends who have made investments on construction projects then you might have heard of delays or postponement. It is frustrating for both the clients and the project managers. Postponement of construction project is also costly for the developers and contractors. However construction delays are the result of not a single thing but a culmination of many. It can be the weather, or the failure of equipments, labor shortages, wrong construction planning or literally anything that can lead to delays in your construction project. Some of these reasons are not in your control but most of the reasons can be avoided for sure.

Read on to know in detail about the 7 causes of construction delays:

1. Budget Inaccuracies

If you or your developer set the budget inaccurate it can lead to devastating results. Your construction project can be drastically affected. Due to this some jobs are dropped down for quite a long period of time. If you set the budget right there is no conflict arising in terms of money for materials required, wages for labors and more.

2. Approvals

If you're waiting for someone to make a decision somewhere then your project is likely to be delayed. It would keep the entire project from moving forward. The leaders of the infrastructure companies need to make effective decisions in order to move ahead with the new construction project planning. Getting decisions approved and coordinating actions can avoid the possible delay in your construction project.

3. Lack Of Good Communication

When there's no communication taking place the projects can be delayed. Or this can also lead to errors in your entire construction process. Communication is the key to successful completion of a project be it with the field managers, or the labors, the owners, or the constructors. Through communication severe issues can be resolved without further delay.

4. Weather Conditions

That one thing beyond our control are the natural calamities one of which is rain. Though it could be the best of we could control that as well but some wishes are better left wishes. Since weather conditions are something not in our control but are always there to cause a problem so we can always be prepared beforehand in order to avoid the delays in new construction projects.

5. Project Completion

Complex projects tend to consume a longer duration of time compared to the small simple construction projects. Projects like dams, motorways are complex projects whereas projects which include residential houses, shops and non commercial buildings are small simple construction projects. The difference between these two types can have a direct impact on the costs as well as duration. Thus, if not managed properly it would continue to increase or heighten the delay.

6. Inadequate Planning

Like practice makes a performance perfect, similarly, lack of planning could take you down to the road of hell. Planning is one of those aspects that affect the outcome of so many different things in life. Proper planning needs to be done before the projects on a new construction site is started. Not just that executing these plans is as much important as the plan itself. Not doing any of this could create a mess and delay your construction project.

7. Inefficient Material

Material plays a key role in your construction project. The materials make sure that the appropriate quality and quantity are selected, purchased, transported, delivered, and handled on-site in a timely manner and at a reasonable cost.
