Analysis of Root Causes of Construction Defects by Correlation Approach

Nimshith.P.T, Anitha.P.M

Understanding defect causes is indispensable to its prevention. This paper aims to identify the correlations between the root causes of construction defects, so as to obtain insights about the complex mechanics of defect causation and assist in developing effective defect prevention strategies. Data was collected through a questionnaire survey of 52 professionals in the construction industry. Correlations analysis showed that time pressure, financial constraints, Misunderstanding clients requirements and organizational culture were the most influential root causes. Defect, error, failure, root cause.

Keywords: Defect, error, failure, root cause
