    Abstract

    The research into this dissertation stems from an interest into why in the 21st century, server delays in construction projects still manifest from design problems which could be easily avoided. The reason for carrying out this research is personally motivated from previous experiences from working on large construction projects. On numerous occasions the contractors would have to change, demolish or delay construction due to design problems, ranging from:
    • Lack of information
    • Change in designs during construction
    • Lack of integration and co-ordination between designers and contractors
    • Lack of consideration to constructability within the designs issued
