Extension of Time and Forensic Delay Analysis

Brant recognises the specialist nature of Construction Project Planning and the interaction between experts in Planning and Quantum matters. Accordingly, we work closely with experts with proven practical experience in the management and planning of construction projects.

Ourselves and our external consultants use the latest project management IT systems in order to research, analyse and demonstrate cause and effect.

We have access to the personnel and technology to carry out the following to the highest standard:-

  • Prepare or check critical path network
  • Prepare or check planned resources
  • Check actual resources employed
  • Check to establish sub-contract programmes compliment C.P.A.
  • Prepare or check as built programme
  • Identify or check duration(s) of event delays
  • Check for concurrent and predominant delays
  • Identify or check activity disruption and delay
  • Identify or check overall critical delay
  • Identify or check resources affected

The execution of one or more of the Planning Procedures above will be required for any claim involving:-

  • Extension of time (EOT)
  • Disruption
  • Acceleration
  • Lost opportunity

Whether required for defending delay costs or promoting delay and disruption claims it is essential that an Extension of Time (EOT) claim is produced to the highest standard permissible by the level of information available. Any Claim will be produced in line with the Society of Construction Law Delay and Disruption Protocol.

Whilst we feel that it is preferable for us to obtain the raw data and then, with input from our Clients, to formulate the EOT claim from scratch, we understand that this can be a time consuming and therefore costly exercise. We can therefore reduce our involvement by providing guidance to our Clients so that some of the activities can be carried out by our Clients’ own resources, therefore reducing the costs.

Elements to be addressed in an EOT claim

All extension of time claims should address the following:-

  • Identification of delay events
  • Liability for each event
  • Contractual entitlement
  • Contractual Compliance
  • Cause and Effect
  • Concurrency
  • Float
  • Mitigation
  • Delay analysis
  • Statement of Claim
  • Substantiation

Types of Delay Analysis

The delay analysis element noted above can be carried out in a number of formats, including the following:-

  • As-planned v as-built –
  • As-planned impacted –
  • Collapsed as-built –
  • Windows analysis –
  • Time impact analysis –
