Hardly could projects be executed in Nigeria without alteration of design. This cannot be dissociated from designs which are not practically buildable or arising from changing taste of client. A study on factors influencing the buildability of designs in Nigerian construction industry was carried out to determine these factors and develop strategy to mitigate them. A total of one hundred (100) questionnaires were administered by the means of convenience and eighty six (86) was retrieved from a…
