Josephine N. Ojiambo, Charles Rambo, Harriet Kidombo


Abstract: The focus of this paper was to investigate influence of project characteristics on completion of construction projects in public secondary schools in Bungoma County, Kenya. Purposive sampling was adopted in choice of study respondents (Principals and Chairpersons of Parent Teachers Association) who were subjected to Stratified sampling to ensure homogeneity of the selected sample in ensuring that samples are drawn from each region encompassed in the target population, then followed by simple random sampling technique from each region. With a sample size of 461 respondents (n=461), the study used questionnaire and interview schedules as primary data collection instruments. Both descriptive and inferential statistics were used in data analysis using SPSS version 21 software. Simple regression analysis was used to determine the direction and strength of the relationship between project characteristics and completion of construction projects in public secondary schools in Bungoma County, Kenya. The correlation coefficient (R) or the beta value 1 of 0.6270 at p=0.00 indicated that the hypothesis was accepted. The coefficient of determination, R-square of 0.393 implied that 39.3 % of the variance in completion of construction projects was explained by project characteristics. From the results, there exists a statistically significant positive influence of project characteristics on completion of construction projects in public secondary schools. This implies project characteristics as a factor needs to be considered to guarantee the success of the completion of construction projects. The current study was done in public secondary schools in Bungoma County. Future studies are encouraged to be done in both private and public secondary schools in the whole country and compare the results. In addition, the research concentrated on education sector. Future research is encouraged to cover other sectors and compare the findings. The findings are of importance to the Ministry of Education in Kenya and other interested parties in future.
