Abstract
Rework adversely impacts the performance of building projects. In this study, data were analyzed from 788 construction incidents in 40 Spanish building projects to determine the influence of project and managerial characteristics on rework costs. Finally, regression analysis was used to understand the relationship between the contributing factors, and to determine a model for rework prediction.Interestingly, the rework prediction model showed that only the original contract value (OCV) and the p...
