Proving and Pricing Delay & Disruption Claims due to Corona Pandemic

Live Webinar

  • 90 minutes

The coronavirus pandemic has impacted construction industry as well. Whether by directive or by circumstance, almost all construction projects are affected. In this webinar we will look at these effects and how to best position ourselves to fully benefit from any available financial recovery. In this time of uncertainty, this webinar will equip the attendee to focus on at least one certainty - recovery of damages for any suspension or shutdown, which will depend on the ability to prove those damages and link them to the suspension or shutdown. In this webinar we will look at the damages resulting from a suspension, for e.g. extended general conditions, inefficient labor and supervision, and demobilization and remobilization costs. Importantly, we will focus on the proof: cost record keeping in line with the “best evidence” concept and proving delay with a contemporaneous period analysis and/or an as-built Critical Path Analysis. Throughout the discussion, we will stay mindful of making the link between cause and effect.

Join this session by expert speaker Fritz Marth, where he will discuss the disruptions caused by Coronavirus Pandemic and how to make financial recovery for any suspension or shutdown.

Session Highlights:

  • The different degrees of suspension from slow-down to shut-down.

  • The nature and types of damages incurred as relates to the different suspension scenarios

  • Keeping and creating adequate documentary evidence of impacts and damages

  • Maintaining adequate project schedules and utilizing appropriate delay analyses

  • How best to approach a loss of productivity analysis

  • Linking the damages to the impacts (cause and effect)

Why You Should Attend:

The current situation is unlike any the construction industry has faced in at least the last 100 years, and a lot of uncertainty remains as to what kind of recovery, both nationally and project-specific, we will experience. However, one thing is almost certain, the degree to which any available aid is received will depend on how well and completely your damages are captured and if you can demonstrate that they tie to the matter at hand.

This webinar will cover those key aspect - fully and adequately capturing your damages and demonstrating that causal connection when and where it exists

  • Construction Attorneys

  • Construction Company Executives

  • Contractors’ Project Management Staff

  • Subcontractors

  • Construction Managers
