In Imo State and Nigeria at large, many construction (building) projects are either uncompleted or outrightly abandoned. This project investigated the possible causes of project abandonment and its impact on the immediate community, contributions to infrastructural decadence and degradations and environmental pollution and its possible remedial measures towards a free abandonment of building project country. Information was collected through personal interview, questionnaire administration, and review of existing literature and journals which formed the base. While the data analysis showed that non-functional government policies, defective procurement procedures, corruption, incompetent Builders (contractors), death of client, defective design or inappropriate change in design, inadequate planning can contribute significantly to project abandonment. It was concluded that non-employment of competent builders (contractors) and consultants, inconsistencies in Government policies, poor location of infrastructural facilities, defective cash flow, corruption, death of client and lack of adequate control in monitoring resources (managerial role) results or accounts for thousands of abandoned building projects. It is recommended that transparency, fairness, accountability, honesty, integrity, good knowledge of the scope of the project, and earlier adequate planning and forecast should be considered before starting any particular building project while construction bank is to be established to rejuvenate several abandoned construction project in the country....
