Winning Construction Delay Claims:
2 Successful Approaches
J. Scott Lowe, P.E.

Construction delays and project impacts associated with them (financial or otherwise) can sink a project if not resolved in a timely fashion. The industry continues to coalesce around a couple of methods for measuring delay. The TIA (time impact analysis) approach seems to be the only approach used to measure delays that have yet to occur, sometimes called prospective delays. Though less dominant, the industry seems to be moving in the direction of relying on the contemporaneous project schedules as a basis for measuring delays that have already happened. These two approaches, though identified separately in the 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.
This informative 90-minute program will help you:
- Examine critical path scheduling
- Review different types of schedule delay analysis methods and understand why these two are so powerful
- Work through an example and learn how to implement a contemporaneous schedule analysis
- Use an example to learn how to implement a time impact analysis
- Understand how these two approaches can provide a comprehensive approach to construction delay analysis
- Discuss existing legal cases supporting the use of contemporaneous schedule analysis
- Review contract language to implement these practices
- Learn how you can avoid disputes and resolve potential delay claims in the future without the need for litigation
- And much, much more!
