Documentation, Proof and Support of Delays
There is a chasm between what you know and what you have to convince others to believe and act on. This chasm is especially wide and deep when it comes to proving entitlement to a time extension and additional compensation for delay. The goal of this course is to show you how to identify and analyze delays, persuasively present the results of your analysis, and completely document your efforts. Executing these tasks successfully will allow you to convince others what delayed the project and why.
There is no shortage of confusing and contradictory information on construction projects. Preparing, assembling, and persuasively presenting the right documentation at the right time will allow you to clear away this confusion.
This recorded webinar discusses the importance of sound contemporaneous project documentation and its role in the resolution of time extension requests and delay claims. The presentation also defines the different types of delay and present the analysis techniques that experts use to prove or disprove the existence of critical project delays. Understanding the anatomy of a well-documented claim will help you construct a strong foundation leading to a successful resolution. Real-life examples presented step-by-step will allow you to see how the concepts and techniques presented in the webinar are actually applied successfully.
