Delay in construction projects is a common issue. Considerable percentages of projects fall behind schedule causing damages to almost all involved parties. Owners may experience losses due to postponed completion dates and Contractors may face liquidated damages. Even Architects and Engineers may face additional challenges resulted by delays. This paper is a study on a target program developed and scheduled for a cluster of five G+15 hospitality buildings. An analysis has been conducted on the Target program, Timeframe, Milestones and Work Breakdown Structure of the project. After analyzing the available project data, target program has been prepared and it is set as a base for the project to be executed. The inference of the study also tries to show the achieved progress of the planned target program. Data of project progress reports at various time intervals has been used to understand and analyze them for the purpose of the study. Key Performance Indicators (KPI) like S- curves is used for the study. The study also underlines the importance of the KPI and their significance in making timely changes in the project schedule to achieve desired project outcomes in defined time frame. Graphical and Tabular representation of the S-curves, Progress curves will give the reader a clear understanding of the objective of the paper.
