Whether an owner, a design professional, a construction manager or a contractor, all construction professionals must learn how to analyze time extension requests, and prepare as well as justify them. 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 Construction Managers 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 webinar by expert speaker James G Zack Jr. identifies 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 discusses how these rules are applied, whether while submitting or analyzing a time extension request. It also discusses the rules concerning concurrent delay and how the courts hold the claimant responsible for allocating concurrent delay. Additionally, the session will highlight two new court rulings which may be "game changers" as they are concerned with time extension requests, delays as well as the use of concurrent delay as a defense against liquidated damages.
