|Abstract: ||This paper presents the results of an empirical study of building material wastages as a recurrent problem on construction site in Nigeria and proffered solutions for curtailing of these wastages. The focus is on three areas, namely; factors responsible for material wastages on building sites and their frequencies of occurrence; materials susceptible to excessive wastages; and effectiveness of factors for the minimization of material waste. The results show that management; construction and client related factors are most frequently occurring and contribute most to overall wastages of materials on sites. The paper concludes that taking into account the suggested level of effectiveness of the factors identified in this study and implementing them in order of priority is a panacea for excessive wastages on project sites.|
