The objective of the training programme is to provide

An understanding as to why many claims for extensions of time and associated losses fail or under recover and how to avoid or minimise the consequences of the common pitfalls.

The principles underlying a “dynamic” and “commercial” programme which, if maintained and updated in an appropriate manner properly identifies all forms of delay and disruption and accurately allocates liability between Sub-Contractor, Contractor and Employer.

Delay is a constant issue in construction projects and the analysis of delay is a science in itself. Proving the loss caused by the delay or other event is equally problematic. The course provides an understanding of the underlying legal principles and various techniques that can be used to prove delay or disruption and how to calculate and prove the associated loss.

The key factor in proving delay, disruption and loss is the quality of the records. An explanation will be given of the various records needed and how to use them to identify critical and other delays together with a detailed explanation of the required content of those records. There will also be an explanation of the various likely heads of claim and the varying nature of proof required. Attendees will gain an understanding of the records they need to keep in order to prove delay and loss.
