Book Description :

The most significant unanticipated costs on many construction projects are the financial impacts associated with delay and disruption to the works. Assessing these, and establishing a causal link from each delay event to its effect, contractual liability and the damages experienced as a direct result of each event, can be difficult and complex. This book is a practical guide to the process of delay analysis and includes an in-depth review of the primary methods of delay analysis, together with the assumptions that underlie the precise calculations required in any quantitative delay analysis. The techniques discussed can be used on projects of any size, under all forms of construction contract, both domestic and international. The authors discuss not only delay analysis techniques, but also their appropriateness under given circumstances, demonstrating how combined approaches may be applied where necessary. They also consider problematic issues including 'who owns the float', concurrent delay, early completion programmes, and disruption. The book has been brought fully up to date, including references to the latest publications from the CIOB, AACEI and SCL, as well as current case law. Broad in scope, the book discusses the different delay analysis approaches likely to be encountered on national and international projects, and features practical worked examples and case studies demonstrating the techniques commonly used by experienced practitioners. This is an invaluable resource to programmers and schedulers, delay analysts, contractors, architects, engineers and surveyors. It will also be of interest to clients' professional advisors managing extension of time or delay claims, as well as construction lawyers who require a better understanding of the underlying assumptions on which many quantitative delay analyses are based. Reviews of First Edition "John Keane and Anthony Caletka are pukka analysts in that tricky area of delays, programming and extension of time. I highly recommend their book Delay Analysis in Construction Contracts. Buy the book." (Building Magazine, February 2009) "The book′s stated purpose is to provide a practical guide for those interested in schedule delay analysis. It provides a good in-depth review of the most common delay analysis techniques.... An excellent book, full of practical tips for the reader and very timely in its publication. It is well worth the cost and a good read for anyone involved in schedule delay analysis." (Cost Engineering, February 2009) It achieves in spades its stated aim of being a practical guide for contractors, contract administrators, programmers and delay analysts, as well as construction lawyers who require a better understanding of the underlying assumptions on which many quantitative delay analyses are based.

Book Description :

Delays in construction projects are frequently expensive, since there is usually a construction loan involved which charges interest, management staff dedicated to the project whose costs are time dependent, and ongoing inflation in wage and material prices. Many techniques are used to analyze delays. Some of these methods have inherent weaknesses and should be avoided. This book points out the shortcomings of these faulty methods and explains how a delay analysis should be performed. It then describes specifically how the analysis is done with CPM schedules. A explanation of delays and delay damages, presented in a straightforward, accessible manner, should be useful to public and private owners, construction managers, general contractors, subcontractors, designers, suppliers, and attorneys whose work involves them in the construction industry. The discussion will include subtleties of the process, such as shifts in the critical path, and non-critical delays. The subject of damages is covered in detail, including the major categories of extended field overhead and unabsorbed home office overhead. Likewise, the damages suffered by the owner, either actual or liquidated, are also explained. Finally, a chapter is devoted to managing the risk of delays and time extensions from the viewpoints of the various parties to a construction project. A discussion of early completion schedules and constructive acceleration is also included. In this new ediion, all chapters are updated to reflect the changes in the construction field since the first edition published over l6 years ago. The Second Edition includes over 40% more information such as new methods for analyzing delays with examples of the proper approach. The author also includes a new chapter on risk managment which focuses on the delay-related risks of the various parties in a construction project. Explains the different categories of delays Addresses the concept of concurrency and also non-critical delays Discusses the more common approaches used for measuring and analyzing delays and the strengths and weaknesses associated with them Prevention of Time-Related Delay Problems

Book Description :

Building contract claims for more time on projects represent one of the largest sources of dispute within the industry. However, identifying the causes of delays, and the effects they have on the project, is often difficult and the burden on the party seeking to prove delay is a heavy one. This book provides the construction professional with an analysis of how construction projects become delayed, the practical measures which can be taken to avoid such delays, and how the parties can protect their positions in the face of delays. It goes on to look at the requirements for producing a successful claim. It provides a straightforward guide to the legal issues, and also considers how the effects of delays can most practically be addressed. The Second Edition takes account of new case law since 1999, and has new sections on adjudication, risk allocations and the Society of Construction Law Delay Protocol. Very well received when it was first published, the book is aimed particularly at contractors, project managers and senior surveyors, but will also be of interest to construction lawyers.

Book Description :

This book has been conceived to address a particularly pressing aspect of ‘disputes in constructions projects’. It provides a practical guide & follows a very systematic approach, to dispute resolution, through mediation, conciliation and arbitration, under the construction contracts. It covers all aspects of the causes of delay including coverage of delay analysis report, the various disputes, and the arbitration process for satisfactory & faster resolution. This book is based on issues relating to major EPC projects of process industries such as steel, petrochemical, power plants, etc. It also covers issues relating to the infrastructure sector in private and public sectors. This book will be useful for persons involved in construction arbitration, lawyers, project professionals, arbitrators, students and academicians. The Present Publications is the 1st Edition, incorporating analysis of problems of the construction sector and their impact along with analysis of 10 case studies while attempting to cull out the necessary principles involved in the execution of the projects. The key features of this book are as follows: • In the introduction, the current scenario of construction sector has been discussed, along-with the problems faced by them and its impact on country’s growth/GDP. • [Delay Analysis Report] Project finalization & execution has also been briefly addressed, along with detailed description of possible reasons of conflicts and disputes in large projects. It also includes Delay Analysis Report (‘DAR’) detailing all the delays which take place in construction projects. • [Preparation of Claims with Examples] Preparation of claims and counter claims has been elucidated (with examples) along-with organizing the evidence for construction arbitration. • Use of Alternate Dispute Resolution (‘ADR’) mechanism, for dispute resolution has been discussed. • [Case Studies] are provided, that compare the project execution methodology, concerning private and public sectors and the outcomes of projects. • [Simple & Lucid Presentation of Text] Technical, contractual & commercial reasons for delay in projects have been described in simple language, which can be understood by lawyers, arbitrators, and laymen working in the construction industry The contents of the book are as follows: • Impact of disputes in construction sector • Ideal needs of successful project execution • Overview of projects and construction sector in India • Types of construction contracts – Traditional • Projects execution in India – Status • General process of finalization of EPC contract for large projects • Stakeholders in EPC project • Analysis and comparison of salient features of different EPC contracts • Critical examination, comparison and review of major clauses of EPC project contracts • Brutal global impact of COVID-19 • Force majeure in Indian projects due to COVID-19 • Project monitoring & control • Pre-requisites for successful completion of an EPC project • Case studies of project execution detailing the methodology of execution, elements of delay and potentialities of disputes in projects • Conclusions drawn from the case studies of project execution • Common clauses of delays in EPC projects • Preparation of project Delay Reports • Delay analyzing techniques in construction projects • Delay in construction contracts – A Legal View • Construction dispute resolution as per Alternate Dispute Resolution mechanism • Settlement of construction dispute through Negotiation • Settlement of construction dispute through Mediation • Settlement of construction dispute through Conciliation • Settlement of construction dispute through Arbitration • Indian Arbitration and Conciliation (Amendment) Act, 2019 a reflection • Claim in a construction project • Need for evidence in construction arbitration Reviewed by Justice Dipak Mishra | Former Chief Justice of India After reading the book, I am tempted to say that though it focuses on a very prosaic subject, yet there is “something” in it that makes it interesting for the readers. And any reader can find that “something” only after studying the book. It is a must read for the students, practitioners and academicians involved in the field. I so recommend as the author is consistently guided by the motto, “quality speaks for itself”. The author’s intention is to assist and educate. I have deliberately used both the words because I am of the view that this book should be read by some with the vision of an Argus-eyed personality and some should study with humility. The author deals with many facets with admirable precision. One may consider his delineation with regard to the conception of delay. He has commandedly adverted to “Common Causes of delay in EPC Projects”. I am certain that anyone arguing a matter before a Tribunal or Court will be extremely benefitted. The author’s case study has its own impact and reaffirms the old saying “Example is better than Precept”. He believes in the concept “successful project execution is more than a written piece of contract”. This statement by Dr. Saraswat deserves to be a quotation. Reviewed by Justice B.B. Srikrishna | Former Judge | Supreme Court of India Dr. S.B. Saraswat is a technocrat with extensive experience of four decades in public as well as private sector industries in India and abroad. He was actively involved in successful execution of many large projects in Steel, Power and Petroleum sectors. His long experience in their execution has exposed him to various kinds of disputes faced as client and as contractor. This book is the result of his rich experience of dispute resolution by arbitration in the construction industry and reflects his insights on aspects of delays, disputes & their resolution. Apart from general discussion of the arbitral mechanics in such disputes, the book focusses on the nature of construction contracts, the likely pitfalls therein, the force majeure clauses in such contracts, project control and monitoring, common causes of delay in EPC contracts, delay analysis techniques, techniques of ADR, nature of claims, their submission and the evidence required to substantiate the claims in light of the legal provisions of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 and other applicable laws. Reviewed by Justice Deepak Verma | Former Judge | Supreme Court of India This book by Dr. S.B. Saraswat encapsulates the following: • The problems of the construction sector and their impact has been analyzed in detail. • First it has been advised that disputes should be resolved mutually among stakeholders failing which mediation and conciliation should be adopted. Procedures for the same have been described in the book. • It is a fact that large construction
