Forty-one (41) factors related to cost overrun on construction projects were extracted from 37 journals, through literature research. Structured questionnaires designed with both open-ended questions and the 7-point Likert scale captured the demographic data and the views of the respondents. Survey questionnaires were distributed to construction professionals such as Project Managers, Contractors, Engineers, Architects, and Consultants. A total of 84 responses were obtained through the online SurveyMonkey application and 66 via hard copy. A total of 150 responses were obtained and were used in data generation. The data was analysed with the aid of software such as Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) IBM 25 and Microsoft Excel 2018.
