FACTORS THAT CAUSE DESIGN CHANGES IN THE IMPLEMENTATION OF CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS
Construction projects always change in both design and construction phases. Changes in construction project led to cost and time overrun, quality defect, dispute etc. To reduce the negative impact of these changes, it is necessary to consider the cause of the change. Design change is one of the major causes of changes in the construction project. Many papers have been published on the issue of changes to the construction project. Existing publications can be used as references about design changes on construction projects. The purpose of this paper is to review and to synthesize the existing literature to determine factors that cause design changes on the implementation of construction projects and to develop taxonomies for the causes of design change.
