Reasons Behind Construction Delays

By Lyle Charles

If you’re in the construction business, then I don’t need to tell you how difficult and challenging it can be at times. For some, it actually feels like this all the time. However, the good news is that if you can see some of those challenges coming, you can potentially head them off before they become giant problems that delay your build.

A big one that you never want to deal with is a dispute between parties involved on the build. This often happens with suppliers. It becomes a difficult problem because you need them to continue with their deliveries on time, but you may simultaneously be looking for a construction expert witness to testify on your behalf.

Unions can sometimes become an issue too. Everyone knows that the threat of a strike is a huge bargaining chip for good reason. But there are other ways unions can potentially put a build on ice.

Then there are completely unforeseen circumstances like equipment problems and the weather.

All of these issues should be something you constantly keep your eye on so you stand a better chance of brining your build in under budget and on time.
