Early Completion Schedules - A Form of Contingency Bidding

Instructor: Jim Zack
Product ID: 705266
  • Duration: 90 Min
A contractor’s right to complete work early was acknowledged by courts in the 1960’s. Delayed early completion claims arose shortly thereafter and became somewhat common in the industry. It was then, and remains now, a controversial issue in the construction industry with many project owners refusing to accept early completion baseline schedules. Others crafted contractual mechanisms defeat such claims. The purpose of this webinar training is to set forth the background concerning a contractor’s right to complete work early and examine the contractor’s right to seek an equitable adjustment should their early completion be delayed by action of the owner.
