Abstract:

There is evidence that construction projects performance in Kenya is poor. Time and Cost performance of projects in Kenya are poor to the extent that, over 70% of the projects initiated are likely to escalate in time with a magnitude of over 50%. In addition over 50% of the projects are likely to escalate in cost with a magnitude of over 20%. Studies have shown that, although cost performance was not better, time performance was comparatively the worst. Australian studies on construction time performance showed that performance was affected by construction management team, project scope and projects complexity.
