Identification of Constraints in Flat Construction in Calicut District by IPA Method

Twinkle S. Nambiar | Fazil P.


Abstract: The aim of this project is to study about various constraints faced during flat construction and to identify the top limiting factors also known as constraints causing delay, cost overruns and poor-quality work. If the constraints are well understood at the commencement of the project, enhanced performance can be guaranteed in future. Classifying and eliminating the constraints from construction activities will help to decrease suspicious in construction procedures and will escalate the limpidity of project management. This study was carried out on the basis of literature review and a questionnaire survey and it was limited to Calicut District, Kerala. There were total of 62 limiting factors (constraints) which were identified during literature study and by interviewing various experts from the construction industry. Twenty responses were received from the questionnaire survey. The data was collected by means of face -to- face interview. Importance-Performance Analysis (IPA) was used to analyze the collected data using IBM SPSS Statistical Software. The final results show the major ones (constraints) prevailing in the flat construction projects that affects the projects in a very adverse manner.
