Plus: Why 2 game-changing court rulings will affect your concurrent delay claims

Register now for this 90-minute audio session in which our expert speakers, Melissa A. Morea and James G. Zack Jr., discuss the rules governingtime extension requests—as well as how two recent verdicts may change the way you prepare or analyze your next time extension request. 

If construction project delays are inevitable, so, then, are time extension requests. That’s why all professionals involved in the project—from the owner, to the designer, to the contractor—must be equipped to analyze, prepare, and justify time extension requests. Being properly prepared means understanding how to apply the tests set forth by the U.S. Federal Courts to justify excusable/compensable delay and to allocate concurrent delay.

In this comprehensive program, you’ll learn:

  • Who bears the burden of proof concerning delay and how to justify time extensions
  • Why an owner may owe compensable delay
  • When a contractor is not required to justify field/home office overhead costs
  • How CPM schedules are used to pursue or defend against time extension requests
  • Common misconceptions concerning concurrent delay
  • New rules regarding when concurrent delay can/cannot be used to avoid liquidated damages

This presentation is appropriate for both construction attorneys and industry professionals, including owners, construction managers, contractors, subcontractors, and designers.

After attending this audio event, you will be knowledgeable about submitting and justifying time extension requests, the limits to an owner’s delay liability, and complex concurrent delay issues. Plus, you will understand how two new court rulings are changing the game concerning delays, time extension requests, and the use of concurrent delay as a defense against liquidated damages.
