Schedule Delay Analysis

Our Schedule Delay Management Services by Schedule Delay Analysis Consultants

Our expert schedule delay analysis consultants deliver comprehensive construction schedule delay services and involve few events to excuse the contractor from any requirement relevant to a Construction delay. The most common factor includes are earthquakes, hurricanes, tornados, wars, labor strikes, and specific sabotage or terrorist acts.

Types of Schedule Delay Consulting Services

Our expert schedule delay analysis consultants deliver the following types of construction schedule delay services.

Excusable Delay

Excusable delay is one of the major types of delays that require a contractor to demand more time to complete specific tasks like Window Delay Analysis. Such delays mainly occur due to several reasons that are not in the control of any contractor. We analyze more classification that is relevant to this delay and explained below:

  • Few Delays are beyond the control of any contractor. They occur due to some natural circumstances like weather conditions, natural disasters (earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, etc.), wars or national crises, or any labor strike during the construction. Through time impact analysis and window delay analysis, our expert extract that such delays will most likely entitle the contractor to a specific time extension and consider as non-compensable delays.
  • Few Delays occur by the owner or the designer (architect/engineer). Such delay allows the contractor to recover the costs and time associated with the delay. It is also known as compensable delays.

Non-Excusable Delay

Non-excusable delays do not show similar conditions to excusable delays. In this type of delay, no contractor is involved in having time extension or monetary compensation. We assist a contractor to expects this delay under normal conditions that are mentioned below.

Few conditions occur like slow mobilization, poor workmanship, labor strikes due to unfair labor practices, accidents in the project site caused by contractor’s negligence or lack of preparation. We evaluate that it might occur due to late delivery of equipment, cash-flow problems, adverse weather conditions, and lack of expert labor.

Concurrent Delay

A concurrent delay is a combination of two or more independent causes of delay during a specific period. The two reasons behind this might be an excusable or non-excusable delay.

Few common scheduling mistakes occur in delay claims by contractors

Our schedule delay consultants have evaluated few mistakes that show involvement during delay claims, specifically in Construction delay claims. Below is the list of some common errors by contractors.

  • Few baseline schedules do not show any logic.
  • Those baseline schedules are built with dates, not with logical activities.
  • Excess usage of constraints that cannot react to logic and other changes.
  • Removal of footprints is also known as the as-built schedule. It neither has any impressions nor any baseline to compare its progress.
  • Unreliable baseline schedules, no confirmation either it is legal or a binding document.
  • Illogical errors in schedules during window delay analysis devalue the importance of the schedule and cause it to throw out of the court in any dispute.
  • No periodic updates
  • Lack of effective documentation
  • No reasonable time contingency
  • No effective allocation of limited resources.

Construction Delay Claim resolution

We deliver construction delay claim analysis because it is a part of the contract to begin and move on efficiently towards the next level. Our Dispute resolution is an effective alternative to a court system because it is lengthy, costly, and complicated. We also involve arbitration as an effective method in our delay claims.

Arbitration

Our expert schedule delay consultants utilize arbitration as a formal process and act as an independent professional arbitrator. Our experts bind both parties without any enforcement power to reduce an enforceable judgment by a court of law.

Upload documents that define the scope of work (drawings, specifications). We will review and get back with a questionnaire about the project, quote and expected completion date.

How our CPM Schedules work for your delay claims?

delay claims

Claimant delivers at least two CPM schedules, one without the change impact and one with effects, in a bid to prove that the change causes the claimed delay. At the same point, an investigator develops CPM schedules by representing how each factor is different from one another to mean the alleged delay. VTI Consultants help both resolve issues and use work breakdown structure (WBS) to deliver effective CPM Schedules.

Work Breakdown Structure

Our expert involves work breakdown structure while delivering Schedule Delay Analysis. Work breakdown structure (WBS) is helpful to store and unify all the documentation and data for each construction feature. It is a task-oriented, comprehensive breakdown of activities that involves graphical displays of the total work to achieve the project’s final objective. We use the WBS method to direct an extensive detail of the project.
