Abstract:

The construction business contains an intense flow of information among different actors in different stages of the building process, which demands an effective and functioning way of delivering information. With contracting where the construction starts before the projection is finished it is critical that the projection follows the time plan in order to get all the construction documents approved on time.

The purpose of this work is to examine the reasons that construction often is delayed due to late approval of the construction documents. The report will also investigate how this can be prevented and finally reach a recommendation for companies how to avoid these kinds of delays. This will be done by studies of relevant literature and interviews of different actors in the business. The study points out time pressure as the main reason for the lack of construction documents.

The delay of construction documents is often related to delayed or defaulted deliveries of information, and late changes in the project. In this case, the suppliers also play an important role, by involving the suppliers in an early stage of the project, and to sustain a good communication the suppliers can be well involved in the process, and these kinds of delays can be avoided.
