Learn Analysis, Costs and Owner/Contractor Responsibilities in Mitigation of Delays
The need for acceleration often follows as a result of delays. Similarly, the responsibility for acceleration and its costs will follow suit. But before attention and energy is expended on acceleration, both parties have a duty to mitigate delays.
Attorneys Mike Harris and Brian Dugdale team up to explain the often-overlooked concept of mitigating delays, which the contractor is obligated to do notwithstanding the causes. The fine line between mitigating and acceleration is explained, along with the various types of acceleration, plus the necessary documentation and proof to support and price an acceleration claim.
This session will help you:
- Understand what mitigation obligation entails and the treatment of mitigation expenses
- Learn the three types of acceleration and why they are relevant
- Discover what a recovery schedule is, how to develop one and its role in the delay-acceleration tandem
- Evaluate impact costs—stacking, overtime, quality, rework, waste and inefficiency — and know who should pay for the acceleration
- And much, much more!
