This paper presents a study of factors affecting time and cost overruns throughout life cycle of construction projects. The issues of overrun in construction are very common worldwide including Malaysia. However, no researchers investigate this problem according to the phases of construction. Hence, this study is to classify the overrun factors into phases of project life cycle which include planning phase, design phase, construction phase and finishing phase. A total of 35 factors were identified based on previous studies involving a number of different countries. These factors were classified according to degree of occurrence of each phase. Based on this classification, it shows that most of the factors occurred in construction phase. This classification gives better understanding amongst construction practitioners.
