Construction Claims Practical Approach

Platform: GoTo Training

Validated for 1 CPD Point


This seminar looks at how a claim arises and how contractors are required, by the modern forms of contract, to keep strict records and provide proper notification of claims situations.

The typical types of extensions of time are addressed and the difficult issue of concurrent overlapping delays by both Employer and Contractor are explained. The three main types of evidence that may be used in support of or in defense of claims situations are analysed and explained. The importance of record keeping is highlighted and what is required of the Contractor where the contract calls for the maintenance of “contemporary records”.

The role of the contractual programming requirements in the day-to-day situation and in the claim situation are discussed and the use of programming techniques in claims for delay and disruption are discussed by way of examples.
