Determination of the causes of the construction delay in higher learning institutions in Malaysia using the rasch model analysis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The development of an infrastructure requires a planned and effective construction management including the construction of the university. To obtain a good ranking, the universities should provide comprehensive physical facilities and infrastructure. This study is to investigate the construction process to know the causes behind the delay process in constructing the high education facilities in the Malaysian universities. The Rasch model technique is applied to analyse the results, and the sample of this study included 100 respondents where the majority are managers and owners of the construction of the high learning institutions. The delay causes are grouped into three factors, there are input factor, internal factor and exogenous factor. It is revealed that internal factors were the most factors that contribute in delay construction process, the factors as follows: poor monitoring by the contractor, lack of consultants experience, changes in design, too many variation orders by owner, delay in making decisions by project owner.
