The main purpose of this study is to identify the primary factors leading to delays in public construction projects in the Western Province of Saudi Arabia and to measure the extent of such delays. Information on 57 delayed projects was available in the official lists of the relevant authorities. Questionnaires were sent to all three parties involved in constructing these projects. Only 32 clients, 30 consultants, and 32 contractors responded to the questionnaire. Based on the responses from the individual and combined perspectives of the three parties, the top 10 most significant delay causes were determined. The extent of delay was found to be severe, about 77% of projects suffered from a delay of up to 50% of the contract duration. According to contractors and owners, 75% of the projects under study were delayed between one month and one year, while this ratio was 70% based on the consultants' answers. The average delay was 13.25 months with a standard deviation of 16.78 months. The findings of the ANOVA testing revealed that the importance indices' means obtained from combined data from the three parties are statistically different. Post Hoc analysis using Scheffe’s test revealed that the means of contractors and consultants differed significantly, while the other means were statistically equal at the 0.05 significance level. Based on the main findings, several recommendations were provided.
