Delay Analysis In Construction Contracts

Delay Analysis In Construction Contracts

The most significant unanticipated costs on many construction projects are the financial impacts associated with delay and disruption to the works. Assessing these, and establishing a causal link from each delay event to its effect, contractual liability and the damages experienced as a direct result of each event, can be difficult and complex. This book is a practical guide to the process of delay analysis and includes an in-depth review of the primary methods of delay analysis, together with the assumptions that underlie the precise calculations required in any quantitative delay analysis. The techniques discussed can be used on projects of any size, under all forms of construction contract, both domestic and international. The authors discuss not only delay analysis techniques, but also their appropriateness under given circumstances, demonstrating how combined approaches may be applied where necessary. They also consider problematic issues including 'who owns the float', concurrent delay, early completion programmes, and disruption. The book has been brought fully up to date, including references to the latest publications from the CIOB, AACEI and SCL, as well as current case law. Broad in scope, the book discusses the different delay analysis approaches likely to be encountered on national and international projects, and features practical worked examples and case studies demonstrating the techniques commonly used by experienced practitioners. This is an invaluable resource to programmers and schedulers, delay analysts, contractors, architects, engineers and surveyors. It will also be of interest to clients' professional advisors managing extension of time or delay claims, as well as construction lawyers who require a better understanding of the underlying assumptions on which many quantitative delay analyses are based. Reviews of First Edition "John Keane and Anthony Caletka are pukka analysts in that tricky area of delays, programming and extension of time. I highly recommend their book Delay Analysis in Construction Contracts. Buy the book." (Building Magazine, February 2009) "The book′s stated purpose is to provide a practical guide for those interested in schedule delay analysis. It provides a good in-depth review of the most common delay analysis techniques.... An excellent book, full of practical tips for the reader and very timely in its publication. It is well worth the cost and a good read for anyone involved in schedule delay analysis." (Cost Engineering, February 2009) It achieves in spades its stated aim of being a practical guide for contractors, contract administrators, programmers and delay analysts, as well as construction lawyers who require a better understanding of the underlying assumptions on which many quantitative delay analyses are based.

Construction Delays

Construction Delays

Delays in construction projects are frequently expensive, since there is usually a construction loan involved which charges interest, management staff dedicated to the project whose costs are time dependent, and ongoing inflation in wage and material prices. Many techniques are used to analyze delays. Some of these methods have inherent weaknesses and should be avoided. This book points out the shortcomings of these faulty methods and explains how a delay analysis should be performed. It then describes specifically how the analysis is done with CPM schedules. A explanation of delays and delay damages, presented in a straightforward, accessible manner, should be useful to public and private owners, construction managers, general contractors, subcontractors, designers, suppliers, and attorneys whose work involves them in the construction industry. The discussion will include subtleties of the process, such as shifts in the critical path, and non-critical delays. The subject of damages is covered in detail, including the major categories of extended field overhead and unabsorbed home office overhead. Likewise, the damages suffered by the owner, either actual or liquidated, are also explained. Finally, a chapter is devoted to managing the risk of delays and time extensions from the viewpoints of the various parties to a construction project. A discussion of early completion schedules and constructive acceleration is also included. In this new ediion, all chapters are updated to reflect the changes in the construction field since the first edition published over l6 years ago. The Second Edition includes over 40% more information such as new methods for analyzing delays with examples of the proper approach. The author also includes a new chapter on risk managment which focuses on the delay-related risks of the various parties in a construction project. Explains the different categories of delays Addresses the concept of concurrency and also non-critical delays Discusses the more common approaches used for measuring and analyzing delays and the strengths and weaknesses associated with them Prevention of Time-Related Delay Problems

Construction Delay Claims

Construction Delay Claims, Seventh Edition, addresses the various aspects of disputes and claims arising from postponed and prolonged project performance. This new edition presents the most thorough and detailed review of delay claims liability available, including a complete description of the entire process for filing and pursuing claims, along with numerous cases and analyses. This resource also includes invaluable information about the most effective use of construction schedules to avoid delays or to prove their impact if they do occur. The following new developments and issues are included in the Seventh Edition: New sections on liability insurance, builder's risk insurance, and professional liability insurance. Dealing with the risks and impact of epidemics and pandemics. New methods of as-built schedule analysis. Because of the economic loss doctrine, one subcontractor may not be directly liable to another subcontractor for the delays it caused. Rare cases of courts using bar charts to evaluate construction delays. Courts conceding to the validity of a somewhat less categorical adherence to the critical path method. Disputes related to the expedited fabrication and delivery of material and parts on a fast-track project. Public-Private Partnerships and the shift of the risk of cost increases, delays, and revenue performance from the public onto private investors.

An Empirical Study Of Schedule Delay Causes Based On Taiwan S Litigation Cases

An Empirical Study Of Schedule Delay Causes Based On Taiwan S Litigation Cases

Many uncertainties can cause construction projects to be delayed, resulting in conflicts between the two parties to a construction contract. This paper employs an innovative technique of analyzing the contents of legal cases that relate to schedule delays in construction projects and using the results of this analysis to construct a comprehensive causation model that appropriately categorizes the causes of these delays. Using case study and content analysis methodologies, this paper analyzed 79 litigation cases in Taiwan to identify the main causes of schedule delays in construction projects, which are "change orders," "changed scope of the work," "delayed site handover," and "weather." Terminology that is used to discuss causes of schedule delays and the causes of delays that have been identified in previous studies are reviewed. In this study, these causes are organized into a causation model to provide a reference for preventing schedule delay. The employed approach can be implemented for assessments of other regions, as schedule delays are common features in most construction projects. In addition, the paper explains the data approach and introduces the study methods used in the investigation and discusses the research findings and the differences between previous studies. The paper concludes by identifying the limitations of the study and provides suggestions for future research.
