Claims Issues and Time Extensions in Construction Schedules PLUS Dealing with Concurrent Delay - The Owner's Newest Defense

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.

Successful Time Extensions and Acceleration Claims: 3-Part Series w/Recovery Schedules Bonus Download

Construction delay is costly — pure and simple. Not so simple is fighting the delay battles, and the legal complexities that could mean the difference between recovering costs or just a no-cost time extension.

 

Concurrent and pacing delays, no-damage-for-delay clauses, constructive vs. voluntary acceleration, recovery schedules, and how to successfully support or defend a schedule impact claim are the subjects of this exclusive three-part series on construction delays.

 

This three-part program will help you to successfully manage time-risk on your projects and review the importance of critical path method (CPM) schedule analysis to prove causation and actual time impact.

Legal Implications of the Construction Schedule

Contract schedule clauses, when they exist, provide a starting point, declaring the purpose of the schedule and how it is to be used and maintained on the job, and its use as a tool for determining time-related changes or impacts. Over the years, a body of case law has evolved, giving shape to general requirements for the creation and subsequent role of schedules in proving or defending claims for delays, acceleration, impact and lost productivity.

Winning Construction Delay Claims: 2 Successful Approaches

There are two approaches for measuring delay, though identified separately in the construction claims literature, are entirely compatible and, when combined, provide a comprehensive, project-schedule-based approach to quantifying delays. Listen to this information-packed session to learn how and when to use each type of delay analysis. Contract language supporting these methods will be reviewed and discussed.

CPM Schedule Review & Analysis

The proof for damages and time recovery of project delays and impact relies almost exclusively on the use of CPM schedules to show both the causes and extent of the delays incurred. Years of case decisions and industry dialogue have resulted in a number of best practices and approaches, both in the use of schedules during the job and for subsequent use in delay-claim support. Consultant, expert and attorney John Livengood explains the various considerations for use of CPM schedules during the course of a project and in the preparation of a delay analysis.

Proving and Pricing Subcontractor Delay Claims

™Subcontractors, like general contractors, are frequently impacted by events and actions beyond their control. In addition to the typical risks involved in construction, subcontractors face other problems also. Subcontractors routinely deal with four sets of problems on every construction project. These problems are caused by the general contractor, the owner, other subcontractors, as well as third parties or force majeure events.

Construction Scheduling: Games People Play

This exclusive three-part webinar identifies more than 15 scheduling games and offers more than 45 suggested defenses to help prevent schedule gamesmanship.  Some suggested defenses involve changes to contract document language and thus need to be implemented during the design phase. Other suggested defenses are pragmatic in nature and can be implemented on a daily basis by a knowledgeable construction management team even in the absence of specification language.

Forensic Schedule Analysis Construction Delay Claims 2-part Series

Time is money and there are real costs to every member of the project team associated with delay. For contractors and subcontractors, delays mean higher overheads, higher labor costs, higher equipment costs, and higher material costs. For public agencies, private developers, and other owners, delays mean higher administrative costs and real impacts to the economic viability of the project. In order to be reimbursed for these costs, you have to show that the other party to the contract delayed you. Listen to this informative 2-part series to learn how to perform the analysis of project delays required to establish the cause and duration of the critical delays you experienced.

Recovery Schedules-The Construction Acceleration Hot Potato: Practical and Legal Considerations

When a construction project falls behind schedule, the owner may require the contractor to submit a recovery schedule. Issues arise over whether the recovery schedule is realistic, what the direct and indirect costs will be, who should pick up the cost, and frequently, whether the need for a recovery schedule actually exists in the first place! Contractors preparing a recovery schedule need to understand the various impacts in addition to possible overtime, on their own labor and equipment resources, as well as their subcontractors.

 

Impact costs such as crowding, stacking of trades, and greater rework requirements are not uncommon. Moreover, costs and time savings are usually best planned by working with resource-loaded CPM schedules to focus only on those activities that are most likely to reduce the remaining contract duration, i.e., activities on the critical path. Owners, their representatives and construction managers need to be just as wary of the acceleration, as they may very well be footing the bill!

Forensic Schedule Analysis - Examples and Case Studies

This webinar will teach you how to perform the analysis of project delays that are needed to determine the cause and duration of the critical delays you experienced. The program focuses on delays that already have occurred on your project and are unlikely to be recovered through acceleration. The presentation draws upon AACE International's Recommended Practice for Forensic Schedule Analysis as its foundation. But the webinar is loaded with practical examples and real case studies to show simple and successful approaches to the quantification of delays.

Weather Planning on Construction Projects: Addressing Delays and Time Extensions

Estimates of the economic losses caused by Hurricane Sandy recently reached $50 billion after experts assessed the costs of severe property damage, shut-down subways and power outages. Hurricane Sandy's recent devastation along much of the East Coast is a reminder of the significant factor weather can contribute to the planning and execution of a construction project. Weather conditions can wreak havoc on project schedules and the calculation of time extensions. Preparing and scheduling your projects for weather conditions can help you avoid, or at least minimize, delay claims.
