The reason for delays is simple. In order to receive overtime the job has to be slowed down. Plus natural delays occur due to every measure of poor management and planning. Increased costs come from contractors forced to give low bids to win the contract. They then submit “Change Orders” with increased new costs to the project. At the same time they provide submitals for like and kind materials that are cheaper then specified. Dishonest contractors will use inferior materials below spec of their submissions if they can hide the work.
