Construction industry is one of the most profitable sectors in Iran’s economic. Delay is common problem in the construction projects in Iran. By considering all viewpoints of the parties, this research identified the most effective and severe causes of delay in construction projects in the Capital of Iran, Tehran. Questionnaires were distributed among respondents who are involved in the construction project in Tehran. The process of data analysis and discussions were conducted based on the two statistical techniques namely descriptive analysis (RII) and factor analysis. Using factor analysis, most critical factors of Tehran’s construction delay were recognized as: (1) lack of commitment; (2) inefficient site management; (3) poor site coordination; (4) Complexity in heritage and legislation; (5) Lack of estimation skills and skilled workers; (6) Lack of communication between parties; (7) Improper planning; and (8) Lack of clarity in contract. These results are anticipated to be important contributions to construction projects in Tehran in controlling the time overruns in construction contracts.
