Learn to Calculate Delay Claim Costs
Presented by Anwar Hafeez
When contractors encounter owner-caused (excusable/compensable) delay they are typically entitled under the contract to recover both the time resulting from the delay, as well as delay damages. Typically, contractors seek to recover their delay costs — extended field office overhead or general conditions costs. However before we get into the specifics, we'll also review the basics.
