The construction industry has one of the highest records of delayed project completions. Each year, millions of pounds are lost because of poor time management, project controls and record keeping. As a result projects often end in dispute between the parties with a consequential need for each to demonstrate extensions to time and details of delay analysis, either for relief from liquidated damages, for demonstration of additional costs that have been incurred, or both. An understanding of the principles underpinning project delay, together with the range of techniques that are used to demonstrate such matters, are a must for organisational stability.

- Are you familiar with the range of techniques adopted to demonstrate delay, their advantages and disadvantages?
