Delays can be defined as the late completion of works as compared to do planned schedule on the contract. This work review has provided a review of causes of delays in building project delivery and ways of minimizing the occurrence of such. The aim of this project was to examine critically the cause of delays in building project delivery in Owerri, Imo state. An assessment of the causes of delays on building projects as well as effects and strategies that can be adopted to minimize delays or eradicate project delays. This study identifies the various types of project delays as"Excusable, inexcusable and compensable delays" with a major resultant on claims and project abandonment as the after effect among many others.

It also shows that all the parties to the contract have a'''' way of contributing their own quota to project delays and that delay can also be a result of circumstances outside the - control of the parties involved in the contract. The work concludes by making relevant recommendations on how best to minimize or reduce to the barest minimum the occurrence of project delays and their impact on the duration of construction projects.
