How to successfully Determine the Costs associated with Delay

Pre Recorded

  • 90 minutes

Contractors have faced very strictly"no damages for delay" clauses. Delay is one of the most common problems in construction projects resulting in construction disputes and claims. These delays can have a severe financial impact on the project. Therefore, determining the costs of delays is crucial to a construction project and its budget. When disputes erupt, delay claims may be filed, and then, knowing the process for submitting or reviewing delay claims, as well as how to approach modifying the contract becomes vital.

This webinar will go over Types of damages, Identifying and proving delays, the most acceptable methods &approaches to documenting impacts, as well as how to categorize and effectively implement these approaches to effectively present costs and delay claims. We will also discuss how project schedules are used and misused to support a party's position.

The webinar will be presented by an experienced instructor, who will provide the perspective of both, the contractor, who is typically responsible for developing and updating the project schedule, as well as the owner, who is typically responsible for reviewing and accepting the project schedule and evaluating requests for additional time.
