The upsurge in building collapses in Nigeria recently has been a source of concern to builders, engineers, individuals and policymakers. This study was informed by the desire to explore the cost and minimum expected time that will be required to complete the project. The data on the cost and duration of activities involved were obtained from Build Strong, Nig. Ltd., a civil engineering company based in Warri, Delta state. The critical path method (CPM) was used for the analysis. The activities underwent the crashing of both the time and cost. This paved way for the determination of a critical path. Further analysis revealed that the shortest possible time for the completion of the analyzed building project is 27 days instead of the expected duration of 92 days. This means that through proper scheduling of activities, the expected completion time was reduced by 65 days. Strict adherence to the activities schedule of a building project would lead to more standards being erected in the shortest possible times and thus minimize the incidence of building collapses in our communities....
