Why is Construction Auditing Important Today
Deloitte & External Construction Surveys
Nearly 75% of respondents experienced some degree of cost overruns and schedule delay.
Fraud/waste/abuse accounts for at least 10% loss of project value globally.


Systematic and objective examination of construction-related systems, practices and processes and provide an opportunity to introduce sound and effective cost management controls and promote best practice standards of construction management.


  • Phase 1: Review of the construction project proposal, and completion of due diligence and initial risk assessment
  • Phase 2: Pre-construction engagement to identify adequacy of critical controls to mitigate project schedule delays
  • Phase 3: Mid-construction engagement to review progress and construction quality
  • Phase 4: Post-completion review to assess the project closeout and subsequent Facilities Management once the facility is commissioned for use

As illustrated in the chart, the sooner the audit intervention, the greater the cost savings in the construction project.
