Hanoi, the capital city, is the economic, political, and cultural center of Vietnam. Every year, the City’s Government always spends a large part of the budget on construction investment in order to create a basis for promoting its economic development and improving the residents living standards. However, in the process of implementing investment and construction, many projects were delayed, leading to the failure to achieve the desired investment efficiency. To research and evaluate the causes affecting the progress schedules of construction projects using public investment capital in Hanoi, the authors conducted a survey and used the F-AHP method to analyze data collected data in order to obtain objective and accurate results on the research problem. The causes affecting the progress of construction projects are classified into four groups, including subjective causes from project participants and objective reasons. The results show that the causes of the project participants have a stronger influence than the objective causes in which the causes related to the owner and the causes related to the contractor have the highest influence.

Keywords: Hanoi, Construction, Delays, Projects, Fuzzy, Progress Schedules, Vietnam.
