English Abstract

Throughout the past decades and until this very moment the world trends toward the steel construction infrastructure due to the many benefits that this type of buildings affords; from the flexible and sustainable steel as a building material to the strong and durable facility as a structural steel construction.

However, the most significant factors to adopt the steel construction around the world and in the Hashemite kingdom of Jordan as a developing country in particular is the economic benefits that the steel infrastructures afford in contrast with what the ordinary reinforced concrete structures are afford.

Yet the delay in such projects leads to overrun the cost.

This study conducted on the most critical reasons behind the delay of steel projects in Jordan, the importance of this research come from the enormous benefits that Jordan as a developing country would gain from improving the steel construction industry; economic durability and sustainability.

Nevertheless, as the delay of construction affects all the other aspects of the project, it is essential to study those delay factors in order to provide solutions specially for the cost which considered the most significant factor to decide whether the project management was successful or not.

This study conducted from a Jordanian perspective to identify the most critical barriers to commit to the steel construction projects in Jordan, those barriers related to; (1) owner, (2) contractor, (3) materials, (4) labor, (5) equipment, (6) project, (7) consultant, and (8) extra circumstances.

Data collected from specialists of both the private and public sectors, the questionnaire's population includes; Consultants, Contractors, Owners, with experience ranges from 1 to 5 years to more than 16 years.

Through the SPSS software the results had been analyzed and studied.

The most ten critical factors are determined and accordingly effective recommendations had been proposed to reduce the time overrun in the steel projects in Jordan thus reduce the cost overrun as well.
