MetadataShow full item record
The Construction industry in Uganda is one of the fast growing industries in the Economy due to the increased volumes of investment in the country. However like in many other construction industries world wide, the industry faces the problem of delay in completion of projects. In most cases the clients are the losers as the extension of time awarded to contractors attracts extra preliminaries and as a result increase of the final Contract sum. In this paper the Author using face to face interviews and detailed analysis of data received from project archives presents a case for acceleration of works rather than extending the project contract period. This is supported by the fact that most of the big construction firms in Uganda have the capacity to complete the projects handled in a much shorter time if they see an economic benefit in early completion.
