Strategies to Mitigate Risks Attendant to Pacing Delay and Defend Against Claims

Pacing delay is a controversial delay issue in the construction industry. Currently there is little literature on pacing delay and case law is a bit sparse. Thus, owners and contractors often find themselves at odds with one another over the practical effect of pacing delay in a delay claim situation.

This session with expert speakers Emily Federico, PSP, and James G. Zack, Jr., CFCC, CCM, FAACE, FFA, FRICS, PMP, will define the term; identify what constitutes pacing delay; and will set forth the contractor’s legal right to pace an owner caused delay. This session will also address the practical impact of a pacing delay, both to the project as well as to a delay claim. This session is intended to assist you in gaining a better understanding of pacing delay and how the issue may be dealt with from both the owner and the contractor perspectives. This session will provide recommendations, for both owners and contractors, when pacing delay arises to mitigate some of the risks attendant to pacing delay.
