    Abstract

    A range of poorly understood factors affect actual construction time in the context of food sector projects in Bangladesh. One factor of particular interest is political unrest. The data for this study were obtained from a leading design and construction management company in Bangladesh. The sample size consisted of data for 104 food grain warehouse projects scattered all over the country. The effect of political unrest on construction time was analysed in conjunction with other known variables for actual construction time, such as increase in project cost and delay in procurement of construction materials. The effect of local political unrest on construction time was statistically significant even in the presence of project cost and procurement of materials variables. Political unrest could be included in prediction models used for finding out actual construction time of food grain warehouse projects in Bangladesh. Based on these findings, a prediction model for construction time for such projects is developed.
