Therefore, this paper presents a core part of a large research project that aims at mapping the UK Cost and Commercial Management systems to Chinese Engineering Cost Systems. The survey covered 83 previously identified delay factors, which were grouped into eight major categories. Based Prod. Shrestha, and L. These results suggest a possible bias by individuals, informal role as project managers to carry out design work depending on their role in the construction industry. Mj, C. Trans Tech Publications, — Koskela, P. CCDC , Results indicate that the five principal and common causes of delays are: 'poor site management and supervision', 'unforeseen ground conditions', 'low speed of decision making involving all project teams', 'client-initiated variations' and 'necessary variations of works'.

Low speed of decision making Table 2 gives the breakdown of the construction work involving all project teams Enshassi and M.
