Read Frequently Asked Questions

This training program may well change the way in which you prepare or analyze the very next time extension request you have to deal with. It will discuss rules concerning time extension requests, arguments about waiver and apportionment of liquidated damages, concurrent delay issues and who has to prove concurrent delay, and more.

Why Should You Attend:

Whether an owner, a design professional, a construction manager or a contractor, all construction professionals must learn how to analyze, prepare and justify time extension requests. Owners and their representatives are tasked with the responsibility of receiving, analyzing and recommending a course of action and deciding on all time extension requests submitted by contractors. Contractors and CM’s at risk are required to analyze, prepare, justify and submit time extension requests on their own behalf and/or on behalf of their subcontractors.

This presentation will identify the tests that have been set forth by the U.S. Federal Courts to justify both excusable and compensable delay time extension requests. The presentation will discuss how these rules are applied, whether submitting or analyzing a time extension request. The webinar will also discuss the rules concerning concurrent delay and how courts hold the claimant responsible for allocating concurrent delay. Finally, the webinar will highlight two new court rulings which may be game changers concerning delays, time extension requests and the use of concurrent delay as a defense against liquidated damages.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn the rules concerning time extension requests.
  • Understand the arguments about waiver and apportionment of liquidated damages.
  • Become knowledgeable about concurrent delay issues and who has to prove concurrent delay.
  • Understand when an owner’s liability for delay is limited or obviated.
  • Become more knowledgeable about the use of CPM schedules when pursuing or defending against time extension requests.
  • Learn some new rules about when concurrent delay can and cannot be used to eliminate liquidated damages.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • When will an owner owe compensable delay and under what circumstances?
  • The rules concerning who has the burden of proof concerning delay and what must be proven in order to justify time extensions – both excusable and compensable.
  • Common misconceptions concerning current delay and who has the burden of proof concerning concurrent delay.
  • When is a contractor not required to justify field and home office overhead costs once a compensable delay has been proven?
  • A discussion on recent court cases, one federal and the other state, which may change the rules of the game concerning the use of concurrent delay as a defense against owner imposed liquidated damages.

Who Will Benefit:

  • Owners
  • Construction managers
  • Contractors
  • Subcontractors
  • Attorneys
  • Design professionals providing services during construction
