When contractors encounter owner-caused (excusable/compensable) delays they are typically entitled under the contract to recover both the time resulting from the delay as well as delay damages. Idled equipment/labor and material escalation costs are fairly easily calculated in such situations. Typically, contractors also seek to recover their delay costs (extended field office overhead or general conditions costs) also.  Calculating this cost is more complex than dealing with delayed direct costs. There are, at least, eight methods of calculating extended field office overhead costs.  None of the calculations arrive at the same daily delay cost. This webinar discusses all eight methods – offering commentary on the strong and weak points of each. The paper also offers recommendations on how project owners can resolve this dilemma in advance of delays, thus making the issue less contentious should a contractor encounter an owner-caused delay.

Session Highlights:

  • Learn about the recoverability of extended field office overhead costs in the event a compensable delay arises on a project.

  • Eight methods of calculating extended field office overhead costs

  • Owners will be exposed to various methods of specifying this element of delay damages in contracts to avoid disputes later should a compensable delay occur.

  • Owners and contractors will receive information on what costs should be deducted from this element of delay damages prior to the submittal of costs in a claim.

  • Owners will gain insight into the issue of the contractor’s obligation to mitigate damages in the event of an owner-caused delay.
