Public school construction projects are generally dated and they have limited budget.
Achieving budget and duration targets in such projects is crucial for project success. Project
delays and cost overruns are the factors that negatively affect educational strategies. There
are many reasons for delay and cost overruns. In this study, causes and effects of delays and
cost overruns in public school construction projects are analyzed. The frequency of the data is
interpreted and main causes are determined. As a result, the main reason for delays and cost
overruns is determined as change orders. Second reason is bureaucracy. It is seen that
effective feasibility phase will greatly reduce project delays and cost overruns.
