I will pay for the following article The Factors Affecting Time Overruns in Construction Projects in Saudi Construction Industry. The work is to be 12 pages with three to five sources, with in-text citations and a reference page. The completion of construction projects within its planned time frame and budget is a critical factor in determining the efficiency and success of the whole project. however, this area has received considerable attention in the past due to persistent problems noted in this regard (Alwi & Hampson, 2002. El-Razek, et al., 2008). Ahmed et al. (2002) have stated overrun problems associated with large-scale construction projects to be a “universal phenomenon”. In the majority of countries around the world, funds raised from construction activities are considered a useful source for regulating and helping the national economy, owing to their humongous size and macro-level impacts on a country’s economy.
As the construction industry in countries like Saudi Arabia has grown considerably, the problems associated with, which mostly relate to efficient operations such as “overruns”, have also grown (Alinaitwe, et al., 2013. Bubshait & Al-Juwait, 2002). In Saudi Arabia, the construction industry has experienced growth on a consistent basis and there are never-ending large-scale construction projects being carried out in the country. Keeping in view such a booming construction sector in the Saudi market, construction companies and consultancy providers have shown keen interest for a long which has thereby resulted in the availability of modern resources and construction machinery and techniques in the country.
Despite the availability of various control techniques and project control tools, many construction projects in Saudi Arabia do not get completed on time. Apart from this, the considerable size and growth in the construction industry of Saudi Arabia render it important to investigate the factors which have an influential role in determining this sector’s performance. The pace at which construction activities are being carried out in the country requires consideration of the time within which these projects are completed and whether the management and planning of time are efficient enough to ensure on-time completion of construction projects (Al-Gahtani & Mohan, 2007. Iyer, et al., 2007. Alwi & Hampson, 2002).
