Learn Strategies for Dealing with Construction Project Delays and Time Extension Requests
I think the case studies were helpful.

The slides had some great information,... the real point is that we liked these speakers and wanted to hear more detail from them, which is a good thing.
I liked the content that it was very complete.
Delay, the five letter word that is anathema to contractors and owners alike, is much a fact of life in today’s large, complex, multi-year projects.
A project delay is usually a result of mismanagement, an unforeseen event, activity or series of activities, inefficiencies, or differing site conditions adversely affecting timely project completion. A construction delay is recognized when a project completes or is forecasted to complete beyond the contract completion deadlines or a significant interim mile stone data specified in the project schedule.
Project delays usually have detrimental impact on perceptions of project success and , in some instances, can result in increased costs and other time-related damages to project stakeholders.
Consultant Tony Nedinsky covers the topic from A-Z, including typical causes, types and outcomes of most delay situations. Join Jeff and Tom to get dialed into the intricacies of delay presentations, support, analysis and defense, including:
- Typical causes of project delays
- The types of delays and their importance—excusable, non-excusable, compensable and non-compensable
- Concurrent, pacing and other delay types that affect delay cost and time recovery
- Time extensions, liquidated damages, delay and disruption costs
- Dealing with no-damage-for-delay clauses
- Proof of delay and remedies
- And much, much more!
Complex construction projects continually require the project team to possess a broad range of project-management skills to guide the project to a successful completion. Over the years, an increasing amount of significance has been placed on the project schedule as a management tool. A thorough and achievable Baseline Schedule developed through sound industry practices and updated through industry standards increases the chances of a successful outcome.
“To prevail on a delay claim, the claimant must show the extent of the delay, the causal link between the actions or inactions contributing to the delay, and the harm resulting from the delay.” See Essex Electro Engineers, Inc. v. Danzig, 224 F.3d 1283, 1295 (Fed. Cir. 2000).

This event features key insights from our knowledgeable construction expert:
Tony Nedinsky, PSP, has amassed experience over his career in several roles, including project management, cost estimating, scheduling, field coordination, negotiation with owners, and community outreach for heavy civil projects. He has taken leadership roles in preparation of schedule analyses and claims for delay, disruption, and acceleration as well as assisting contractors and owners with specific scheduling assignments to develop, enhance, and update baseline schedules.
His experience includes constructing several types of bridges (concrete girders, steel girders and box beams, integral and semi-integral abutments, and simple spans), foundations (H-pile, drilled shaft from micropiles up to 72-inch diameter caissons), post and panel retaining walls (with and without tiebacks), mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) retaining walls, crib walls, combination walls, soundwalls (concrete post, steel post, and lightweight soundwall), and support of excavation (chance anchor, pile and lagging, pile and lagging with tiebacks, pile and lagging with rakers, and tiebacks with shotcrete). His experience also includes earthwork and roadway construction, reinforced concrete pavement, large concrete underground structure construction including architectural concrete and finishing, storm drainage, water line (up to 54-in. diameter), sanitary sewer (gravity and force main), gas line, ductbanks, and overhead electrical lines. He also has performed tenant fit-out work, including HVAC, electrical, plumbing fire protection, and interior finishes. He most recently worked in the project engineer role in a large segment of a $1.5 billion design-build project to construct new generalpurpose lanes, toll lanes, and multiple bridges.
In addition, a 10-15 minute period has been reserved at the end of the presentation for an interactive question-answer session so you can discuss specific issues or gain additional knowledge about topics discussed.
