understand what the client wants because once the information delivered is unclear, it would definitely cause barrier in communication. The sender needs to clearly understand the message before conveying it to the receiver. Previous research has proof that communication barrier could cause dispute and also project delay. The aim of this research is to study the perceptions of contractors on barriers of communication at construction site. lt is also to explore the effect of communication barrier on construction site, to identify the communication barrier on construction site and to provide solution to overcome the communication barrier at construction site.
