Q Why do some Construction Projects take too long ?
A. There are really only 2 common answers to this problem. #1. The Contractor on the job is simply not qualified or experienced enough to handle and properly run the job efficiently. #2. Money, the Contractor bid the project very low (Lowballed the bid just too get the job ) and is unable to find anyone to work on his job because he will not pay the proper price.This is usually the result of the owner choosing a contractor that bid the job well below the average. They chose their contractor on price alone and did not investigate if the Lowball contractor was qualified to do the job.  Although these 2 answers seem simple enough  , they are the cause of over 80% of job delays . Each of these answers has other issues that contribute to delays but put simple there are normally only these 2 reasons. The remaining 20 % are usually due to factors beyond one's control .Some examples might be :Material or Specification problems ,Delays in deliveries of certain materials or perhaps Weather related problems .
