Delay, Disruption and Extensions of Time

Tuesday, July 25, 2017, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM NZST


This one day workshop has been developed from training workshops run by the facilitator mostly  for contractors,  and summarises  more advanced and recent  Ideas  which are vital knowledge for engineers and contractors running 3910 and similar contracts, and for both  preparing and  responding to such claims. The workshop analyses  the various entitlements  contractors may have for additional time and/or money, such as delays resulting from design changes, interference with progress by others,  adverse weather, the need to cooperate with separate contractors, and various other entitlements to variations or extensions of time. 


Contractors  need to know how best to present and justify such claims and an Engineer administering such  a contract will need to respond with objective assessment of  what additional time or money entitlements should be certified.  Some myths about such assessments are exposed during the workshop, as well as possible ways to make best use of tools like the contractor’s programmes,  to assess entitlements, the relevance or otherwise of critical paths,  which party owns the float, and techniques for the analysis of concurrent delays. More sophisticated tools that could be used (such as prospective or as-built programme analysis) are explained, along with lessons learned from recent court litigation on the topic.


Participants will benefit from

  • learning more formal processes for such claims and their responses,
  • to  improve the chance of success for contractors,
  • or to justify appropriate evaluation and responses to claims by contract administrators.
