C3M5V1 Delay Analysis and Entitlement

Construction Claims Premium E-Course

C3M5V1 Delay Analysis and Entitlement

This is another two-part module which deals with the separate subjects of delay analysis and the contractual entitlement to make a claim.

An extension of time claim will fail unless it demonstrates that the delay had an effect on the completion date. This module provides an overview of delay analysis principles, including concurrent delay, float and the critical path, how to link cause and effect and how to show the effect of the delay on the time for completion. The assignments require you to prepare basic examples of an impacted-as-planned and a time-impact delay analysis to illustrate the principles discussed.

In order for a claim to succeed, the event that is the basis of the claim must be something for which the contract allows the claimant to seek compensation. It is therefore essential that a claim includes an examination of the contractual provisions and clearly includes justification as to why the event is admissible under the contract. Your assignments for this section of the module require you to produce claim narratives that demonstrate entitlement for two case studies.
