Construction delays are not always easy to categorize or segregate. On a complex project, activities on the schedule’s critical path may be delayed by multiple factors. Some may be the responsibility of the owner; some the responsibility of the contractor; and some the responsibility of neither party. Compounding the problem is the fact that the impact of multiple delay events may be experienced concurrently.


"Being a LEED Accredited Professional (AP) has now become a full-time job," says Beth Holst, vice president of credentialing,Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI). Ten years ago, working on a LEED-certified project was a novelty. Today, it is the everyday norm at many design firms. In fact, reasons for LEED's 2009 changes and updates, released earlier this year, are in direct response to the skyrocketing population of LEED APs and LEED-certified projects.
