Delay and impact claims can threaten the viability of your project, as well as cause serious financial and reputational damage for you and your company. Learn the latest risk management techniques to protect yourself and ensure that your project is claim free.

Project delays and their attendant impacts are among the most insidious threats to your business and your very livelihood. They lurk on any and every job you do, and unmanaged, they could risk your financial ruin. Learn the critical information you need to improve your risk management strategy on every contract.

An expert faculty of practicing lawyers and consultants, with years of combined experience in the construction industry, will provide you with practical and effective legal and strategic risk management tools that you can immediately implement on your next project. You will develop a thorough understanding of delay and impact claims, and will come away from the program better equipped to confidently manage the next troublesome claim you encounter.

You will learn about:

  • Main causes of delay, including contractor and owner-caused delay
  • Troublesome contractual delay provisions to watch out for
  • How to comply with notice requirements – and why it’s important
  • The types of damages that are recoverable
  • Managing thorny issues, such as causation and impact, float and concurrent delay
  • The different methods for calculating delay & impact losses, and their advantages/disadvantages
  • Time impact and windows analysis
  • The importance of the schedule, including regular schedule updates
  • Monitoring and adjusting the critical path – are you really delayed?
  • How to use the consultant most effectively
  • “Document, document, document” – what is an effective paper trail, and how should it be maintained?
