The schedule is a great tool for both avoiding and supporting claims.  When jobs fall behind, the parties need to sort out the various causes of delay to determine if the contractor is entitled to a time extension, will need to accelerate, or will be on the hook for liquidated damages.  These two very important on-demand training sessions presented by construction scheduling experts and consultants are for anyone who needs to submit or review a schedule update, or is involved in sorting through the various issues of concurrency in assessing project delays.

Consideration of Claims Issues and Time Extensions in the Creation and Update of Schedules
Presented by:
Zeynep Guven, Warner Construction Consultants
J. Kimon Yiasemides, Ankura

Determining the impact of delays on a construction project is all too often only performed in the retrospective. Full consideration of claims issues while updating the project schedule, and even as early as during the creation of the baseline schedule, should be performed for many reasons. Substandard or inadequate schedule updates can severely hinder the development of delay claims and the resolution of disputes. To amplify the power of your schedule as a claims support tool, there are certain considerations that should be taken into account in developing the baseline and updating the schedule.


This webinar will discuss the aspects to consider, and the best practices to implement, so that the project schedule may be a claims-support tool, as well as a claims-avoidance tool. These considerations are important from the project owner’s perspective, as well as the contractor’s. 


This information-packed, 90-minute webinar program will help you: 


  • Understand the importance of, and the best practices in, implementing supportive aspects of later-occurring claims issues when developing a baseline schedule
  • Update your monthly schedules so that claims are more defensible
  • Demonstrate an impact to your schedule through the use of monthly updates
  • Properly use narratives and fragnets in monthly updates
  • Navigate other strategic practices and considerations involved
  • And much, much more!

Concurrent Delay — The Owner’s Newest Defense
Presented by:
Jim Zack & Emily Federico
Ankura (formerly Navigant)

When owners impose liquidated damages at the end of a delayed project, contractors typically respond with allegations of concurrent delay. That is, they argue, some or all of the project delay was actually caused either by the owner or an outside force that forgives liquidated damages. As owners generally do not impose liquidated damages until the end of the project, the contractor’s claim of concurrent delay frequently is not submitted until the project is complete. This program examines how concurrent delay is asserted by contractors to defend against owner assessment of liquidated damages.

Attend this information-packed, 90-minute program to:

  • Understand exactly what the “Doctrine of Concurrent Delay” is
  • Learn the impact of concurrent delay on liquidated damages
  • Explore the owner’s newest defenses against claims of concurrent delay
  • Discover the contractor’s risk of filing delay claims at the end of the project
  • Review two court decisions to remind owners of legal defenses they should employ to defend against allegations of concurrent delay
  • Get practical tips for contractors when facing potential delay to avoid claims
  • And much, much more!
