Abstract

Accurate determination of extension of time (EOT) in construction projects is contingent upon how the delay analysis technique (DAT) is applied. However, the high numbers of dispute cases pertaining to EOTs in the Malaysian construction industry suggest that there are significant issues on how the DAT are adapted to determine EOTs. This paper presents the research which provides insights to explain the phenomenon. The four common DATs, i.e. (i) 'But-For', (ii) 'What-if', (iii) 'Window', and (iv) 'As-Planned (Baseline) vs As-Built Comparison' methods were drawn as the basis for the investigation. Quantitative data using the questionnaire survey were collected from consultants including architects, engineers, quantity surveyors, and construction managers. Descriptive statistics were used to assess the data. The main finding described that the application of the right DAT within the industry need to improve. To address the concern, it necessitates the industry to review the current industry practice by promoting the practice of the right DAT when determining EOTs if the problem is to be effectively addressed.
