What are Delay Claims in a Construction dispute?

Delay claims usually require familiarity with the CPM (or PERT) scheduling system. Assigning responsibility for project delays compels a review of the actions of the owner, construction manager, architect/engineer, general contractor, subcontractors and suppliers. Scope changes, unanticipated job site conditions and other unforeseen events – as well as the language of the governing agreements – require close study and analysis. Not every delay will cause a project to miss its completion date, nor does a missed completion date necessarily require compensation. An effective presentation of facts can separate the compensable claims from the frivolous. Our next segment will be on defective work disputes.

If you think you have a construction dispute on your hands make sure to contact an attorney with a strong track record related to construction disputes. Patterson attorneys Thomas E.
