Course detailsDealing with Delay and Disruption claims in Construction Projects It is a common fact that construction projects normally get delayed for several reasons like resource constraints, late authority approvals or simply due to scope increase and client’s change of mind. When a project is delayed, the contractor is losing money on site expenses and overheads and the delay claims are most debated in final account negotiations. Delayed projects also cost money to the developer as the delayed possession prevents him to earn out of the asset that is being constructed.
Although the word disruption is used along with delay, it is an entirely different element and it is totally incorrect to refer to them as synonyms. Unfortunately, disruption claims are difficult to work out and prove to opposite party to approve for additional compensation.
Unfortunately the FIDIC or other standard form of Contracts offers no guidance on dealing with delay and disruption claims. Independent professional agencies like SCL and AACE tried to streamline the concepts and offer some assistance for the construction industry but unless someone explains the principles with relevance to your area of work, these resources are hardly useful.
