Typically, delay claims require familiarity with the CPM (or PERT) scheduling system. To assign responsibility for project delays, review the actions of the parties involved. 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. In our next blog post, we will cover defective work disputes.
