Chartered Surveyors Chartered Building Consultancy

Delay and Disruption Analysis

For various reasons, not all projects run as smoothly as anticipated; consequently, the contractor may, under the terms of the building contract, be entitled to pursue extensions of time to the agreed construction period and or contend a case for disruption whilst undertaking the works.

In such circumstances, we are able to provide an opinion as to the validity of requests for extensions of time and or notices of disruption that may be submitted by the contractor.

We are also able to assess the extent of loss and or expense attributed to valid extensions of time and or disruptions and, where instructed, undertake negotiations with the contractor to reach a settlement on behalf of the client. For any period for which the contactor is not entitled to extensions of time, we are able to advise our clients as to their entitlement to deduct damages identified within the building contract.
