Effects of delay in construction projects seem critical and if not handled appropriately, whereby it could result to wastage and less utilization of resources. This has contributed to negative impact on stakeholders in the construction industry. This research aims to identifying the effect of common delay factors on the contractor reputation. The objectives were achieved by examining the effects of construction delays on contractor reputation in the Nigerian construction industry through a systematic analysis. Structured questionnaire was used to 140 contractors that actively in the construction industry with 65% response rate. Several analyses such as mean, ranking, correlation, t-test and analysis of variance (ANOVA), were used to analyze the data. The result shows that quality of work and inability to access foreign loans were the most effecting factors on contractor reputation. Contrastingly, good communication and safe healthy environment were the most significant factor that could promote reputation of contractor. The homogeneous analyses indicate that there are significant different perceptions of respondents on some few variables. The research confirmed that delay factors have effects on contractor reputation and there is need to good communication systems for significant performance to be obtained.
